I guess this is possible.  I first installed the base package using the
Macports infrastructure.   But the Macports package does not expose the
debug configure option as, what they call, a variant of the package build.
 So at that point I installed it by hand, first with the tar.gz download
from your web site.  That produced the error you have seen.  I tried the
.zip download on your suggestion and that did work although that was perhaps
a timing coincidence.

Anyway it all seems fine now.
