Hi Peter,

Yep, that's it. Copied far too many flags from one machine's configure 
output into the config.site file on the new machine - that'll teach me 
to do things in a hurry and late in the day! Removing the duplicated 
flags allows configure to work now.

Thanks to Peter, Prof. Ripley and Martyn for their help solving my 
error. As always it is much appreciated.
