config error installing XML-RPC on longsleep Ubuntu
#1
I've used the xenial-pine64-bspkernel-20160716-1.img to install the longsleep Ubuntu then did the apt-get update and upgrade.  

EDIT: I just reformatted my card, put on the brand new xenial-pine64-bspkernel-20161217-1.img, did all the other resize, etc, and got the same results below. I' replacing the output from yesterday with the output from today.
I'm trying to install XML-RPC via 
svn co -q https://svn.code.sf.net/p/xmlrpc-c/code/stable /tmp/xmlrpc-c
but when I get to the line:  ./configure
it fails because it is unable to guess the build type.
Has anyone been able to get this to work?  How would I go about checking the URLs in their comment to see if it would recognize this custom build? or how would I specify a build?  
I know this might be more of an XML-RPC support issue, but this has worked fine on other stock Ubuntu builds I've done in the past.
Thanks for any support you can offer.
Code:
The output message I get is below:

[email protected]:/tmp/xmlrpc-c# ./configure --disable-libwww-client --disable-wininet-client --disable-abyss-server --disable-cgi-server

download the most up to date version of the config scripts from

This seems to solve it for me:

Code:
cd /tmp/xmlrpc-c
mv config.guess config.guess.bak
mv config.sub config.sub.bak
ln /usr/share/misc/config.guess ./config.guess
ln /usr/share/misc/config.sub ./config.sub
