Based on the failure being in bin/python, I suppose it was this:

3946.   [cleanup]       Improved "configure" search for a python interpreter.
                        [RT #36992]

I'm guessing your system doesn't have a python interpreter, but configure
got confused into thinking it does.  If I'm right, then installing python
ought to make the build work, for the time being.  We'll address the
problem before final release.

Do you still have your config.log?  May I see it?
