This seems to jibe with what Tushar mentioned in his reply.  I need to 
look at strace to see what its output looks like.  Maybe a script to 
parse a strace log would be better.  Are there other tools we could use? 
  What about grepping (or something else) log files generated from 
configure, make and make install commands?  This probably would not work 
as well as this would only be my local config/log and not a system 
independant config/log.
