... 'DOS style line breaks'. Could this be the problem?

Actually, yes, playing some more with this (in particular with a csh compatible shell), I do in fact obtain similar effects when the entire script has DOS/Windows style line endings... (just fixing the problem on the shebang line is not sufficient).  Not sure how those \r got in the file... did you edit Configure prior to running it initially?  Anyhow, this should fix the problem (at least with this very file...):

perl -i -pe 's/\r//g' ./Configure

(Well, if you already have any perl installed, that is... Otherwise, look for some tool like dos2unix, or similar)

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
