The only reason I can think of is that you changed something in and then regenerated the configure script. But then when
you did the cvs update you got tons of conflicts in the configure script
so it does not work anymore.

The solution to this is to resolve any conflicts you may have in the file, and the run autoconf again to update the configure

If that does not help, then you will have to tell us more about what
configure says when it fails and possibly post the config.log file.
