I solved the configure file problem and ran the ./configure successfully.
Now i am getting a problem with make. Make is throwing the error

No rule to make target `common/getopt.cc', needed by `common/getopt.o'

I tried editing the makefile.in file, giving the exact path of getopt files
but of no use.
