It looks like you're not using GNU make:

checking for gmake... no
checking for make... /usr/bin/make
checking whether we have GNU make... /usr/bin/make: illegal option -- -
usage: make [-einqrst] [-k|-S] [-d[A|adg[1|2]mstv]] [-D variable] [-f makefile ]
 [-j [jobs]] [variable=value ...] [target ...]

Try installing that and see if you get further.

Also, at the top of SCREEN.DMP, I see:

configure: WARNING: $PATH contains /usr/ucb - build errors may follow

See if things improve if you remove /usr/ucb from your PATH before
running ./configure.
