I believe the problem comes from running ./configure with sudo (as root),
as any new file/directory created will be owned by root. Then, you run make as
normal user and have no privileges to deal with the new files/directories.

No need for sudo or root user, when running configure, make, nor usually with
"make check" or "make test". Actually it is dangerous, doing so.
Earlier today, I could not login into my main system, due to making tests
when building OpenJDK-, because "shadow" was overwritten (I solved the
problem, but some months ago, would not have been able to do so, and would
have considered it a not-fixable system).

Only for "make install" or for copying the generated binaries, root
(sudo, su, ...) is required.
