You misunderstand. I was asking Kendra what the permissions and
owner were set to on configure. I figured that the most likely
problem was that either the execute bit was not set or else it
was set, but Kendra did not have permission to execute the file
due to the owner being different. A simple ``ls -l ./configure''
will give the answer.
