 I have found one suspicious place in the ./configure file, line 41721, 
 which is:
 gcc conftest.c -o /dev/null > /dev/null 2> /dev/null
 To check whether this is the cause, I suggest that you run "bmake clean; 
 bmake wrapper", add an "ls -l /dev/null" before and after this line, and 
 finally run "bmake configure >out", "grep /dev/null out".
 If that doesn't reveal the cause, please try this:
 bmake clean
 bmake wrapper
 truss -o /tmp/truss.out -e -a -i -f bmake configure
 grep "/dev/null" /tmp/truss.out
 If you find a rename(), this is most likely the cause. On my system I 
 got lots of open64() and create64() calls, but I think these were all 
 innocent. Please send the grep(1) output anyway, if it's not too long.
