If you read your site settings *carefully*, you will see that at least 
some are not prefaced by <tag>=. They will then not be recognised and 
inserted where needed, leading to chaos. Please go through your site 
settings once again and correct them. Here is an example that just will 
not work:

## Header file search directory ('-IDIR') and any other miscellaneous
## options (such as defines) for the C preprocessor and compiler.
## If unset defaults to '-I/usr/local/include', with '-I/sw/include'
## prepended on systems using Fink with root '/sw'.
## CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include -I/usr/local/include/readline

but you also have:

## The command which runs the C++ compiler.  It not specified, configure
## uses the values of the environment variables 'CXX' or 'CCC' if set,
## and then looks under the names 'c++', 'g++', 'gcc', 'CC', 'cxx', and
## 'cc++' (in that order).
CXX="/opt/SUNWspro/bin/CC -xarch=amd64"
