/* confdefs.h */ is a start of a header file that the configure script
uses. 'configure' essentially tests the compatibility of your system
and its libraries by asking your C compiler to compile a large number
of small programs and comparing the output against known values. Based
on those results, it can guess what kind of a system you are running
and/or tweak certain portions of the code based on what values it

That indicates the possibility that your C compiler is not correctly
installed, or your compile process is trying to write to parts of the
disk that you don't have write permission set.
