make loops with ./configure

I didn't know exactly where to put this, so it's here.  I have RedHat Linux 4.0, 16 Mb RAM, 1.0 GB Drive, Compatible hardware...

When I try to recompile some programs that require  "./configure" to be run first, make loops.  After running configure, I type make.  However, the first thing that happens is config.status is run.  This results in a run of ./configure again, then make again, which in turn runs config.status, which results in a loop.  I have tried removing config.status, Makefile, and editing the Makefile to remove config.status.  This does not happen on only one product.  For instance, ppp-2.2.0f, tcl7.6p2, tk4.2p2, shadow-utils (rpm source) and others.  TIA

Maybe a timestamp problem?
If you do "ls -l config.status Makefile",
are their times reasonable? Is your system time?

You should update your make to make 3.75 and try ldconfig -v.
Then it should be OK. (if you have all the rest up to date acording to /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes) i suppose also
that you have a complete recent kernel tree in /usr/src/linux...
