this so your help would be appreciated.

I'm a Redhat 6.2 w/Helix 1.2 and I don't have this problem.  However, I
have in the past had this problem (back before I knew anything) but I
never did figure out what the cause of this problem was.  If anyone out
there knows, I'd love to know what it was.

Anyway, to fix your problem, you need to specifically tell it what your
computer system is because the config.guess file isn't figuring it out for
you.  On my system it is i686-pc-linux-gnu

That means that I have to do 
./configure --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu

in order to configure it for that host.  I'm not actually sure if the
--host option is needed but I did it anyway when I was having these
problems and didn't bother checking its validity back then.
