I found my problem.  I had created a script which removes any does the chmod-ing of files, winemaker, and configure.  If I put configure as shown on multiple lines with a backslash to specify the command is continued as shown above, it wouldn't work.  If I put the command on 1 line albeit, very messy, it works.  Thank-you for the help on getting the configure script to work.
