I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 8). It is an
x86_64 bit system.
I have the source code under ~/kscope/ and run configure from there like this:
./configure prefix=/users/sri/kscope_1_6_2_bin

This produces the error:
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
