- why modify configure.make ?!  that shouldn't be necessary.
- you don't need "sudo make"; a plain "make" is fine.  actually,
  it's better than a "sudo make"... I'd do "sudo make clean; sudo
  make distclean" and start again with a normal-user "make".
- if you only want to build the docs, you could skip over "make"
  entirely and do "make doc" with the EXTERNAL_BINARY trick given
  in the CG.
