config error

I am getting the error "configure: error: calling emacs" when trying to configure tramp 2.1.1. (Unlike the same error message reported at <> this isn't caused by a faulty site-start.el because "--no-site-file" is now specified in the configure script.)

My emacs installation is fine:
> emacs --version
GNU Emacs

Does anyone know how I can avoid this error (or avoid the test) and continue with the configuration/installation? None of these commands work for me, either as written or while executed under "sudo":
./configure --with-contrib
./configure --with-emacs
./configure --with-contrib --with-emacs

Any ideas?  Thanks.

Here is the config.log:
