I just helped a friend who had the same problem, it happens when you port the
MUD to a different OS and don't delete all the config files.  Delete the
following files...


Note, if you are porting from Windows you will have to run all your source and
text lib files through a dos2unix filter, you can find such a filter by typing
dos2unix into a search engine.

After all this rerun ./configure and make.
