Well that is weird, since configure knows about Xeon processors'

What does 'uname -p' give at a command line. It should return something, 
probably 'i686'

At about line 1993 in configure there are a series of if..then..elif 
statements like:

    if expr "$processor" : ".*Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU.*5110" > /dev/null ; then
    elif expr "$processor" : ".*Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU.*5160" > /dev/null 
; then

It might be that your Xeon has a number which configure does not 
recognize. Try substituting "3210" for the "5110" and see what 
happens..or "X3210"

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.

          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
