looking at the log, you didn't have to show the hostname, but if its
not a security concern to you then don't worry about it.

This seems to be where the log goes south:
g++: '-V' option must have argument
configure:3827: $? = 1
configure:3816: g++ -qversion >&5
g++: unrecognized option '-qversion'
g++: no input files
configure:3827: $? = 1
configure:3831: checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler
configure:3850: g++ -c conftest.cpp >&5
configure:3850: $? = 0
configure:3859: result: yes
configure:3868: checking whether g++ accepts -g
configure:3888: g++ -c -g conftest.cpp >&5
configure:3888: $? = 0
configure:3929: result: yes
configure:3958: checking how to run the C preprocessor
configure:3989: gcc -E conftest.c
configure:3989: $? = 0
configure:4003: gcc -E conftest.c

specifically here on line 146:

conftest.c:10:28: error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory

Make sure that you have ac_nonexistent.h

It looks like these were your flags:
configure --disable-shared --enable-threads=posix --prefix=/opt/pware
--with-long-double-128 --with-mpfr=/opt/pware --with-gmp=/opt/pware

What happens if you don't give it any flags.
I would think that it would still fail, but this is an assumption.

Also, if you give it no flags, I am only advocating just doing the
configure and make (not a make install)
