Thanks Chris,

Wound up just nuking my build directory and that did the trick.

Following is the last stanza of the failed configure operation.

The auto'stuff configure process in RTEMS is a strange thing. The split phases can have issues. I tend to clean and reconfigure and because I do it so often I use this script ...
