Please do not top-post on technical mailing lists.

Your commands start with an invalid "CFLAGS := -gdwarf-2". That would
evoke an error for any bourne shell. If you actually did something
else, please include the *precise* commands that you ran and all
output. Did you actually type "CFLAGS=-gdwarf-2" ? You make it
unnecessarily hard to debug your problem when we have to guess things
like this.

Nothing about your configure output suggests there is a problem, and
you included no output from the "make" commands. I suggest that you
run "make V=1 > out 2>&1" and attach that "out" file if there is some
