i guess it fails because you're using Fedora 17 and don't have ccache
installed, which causes $COMPATH to be the empty string, because
CC=/bin/gcc.  that is a defect in the configure script, but i'm too lazy
to boot my F17 box to fix it right now (will do that on Monday), you can
just install ccache as a workaround, it'll accelerate things when you
make changes anyway.
