Well that is weird, since configure knows about Xeon processors'
What does 'uname -p' give at a command line. It should return something,
At about line 1993 in configure there are a series of if..then..elif
if expr "$processor" : ".*Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU.*5110" > /dev/null ; then
elif expr "$processor" : ".*Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU.*5160" > /dev/null
It might be that your Xeon has a number which configure does not
recognize. Try substituting "3210" for the "5110" and see what
It might take a debugging 'echo' to find out what $processor actually
says at that point in configure, but that is one way to find and fix.
Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
I may wish to offend you again in the future.
