Can you send this list your file so I (or somebody else) can
commpare it against a working version and see what is missing.

Oh, before you do this, you may want to run a plain "./Configure". This
will ask you all kinds of questions, just accept all the defaults. It'll
take you a while to get through everything but you may spot errors a lot
easier that way.

If you can't figure anything from the manual Configure, then send the file (compress it with bzip2 first if it's larger than say about
10 KB).
