Default Problems configuring maildrop (install ./configure)

Hey all,
long time no see.
I recently rebuilding my server but now i got a problem with my maildrop
i want to recompile it with mysql support (ya i'm running lates debian)
but my ./configure script is like in a loop
checking for gdbm_open in -lgdbm... (cached) yes
checking for gdbm_open... (cached) yes
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating dbobj.h
config.status: creating dbobj.config
config.status: creating maildrop.spec
config.status: creating maildrop.lpspec
config.status: creating README.html
config.status: creating INSTALL.html
config.status: executing depfiles commands
configure: configuring in numlib
configure: running /bin/sh './configure' --prefix=/usr/local  --with-db=gdbm '--enable-maildirquota' '--enable-maildropmysql' '--with-mysqlconfig=/etc/maildropmysql.conf' '--enable-maildrop-uid=5000' '--enable-maildrop-gid=5000' '--enable-trusted-users=root postfix vmail' '--enable-syslog=1' --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=.
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gawk... (cached) mawk
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
This is just a part of the ./configure??

Watte hell is wrong (i could not reproduce this error on any other source code), also when i exit the ./configure with CTRL+C after writing thingy it stiles make a error on make (nothing to do on all)

Second, i wans made a mistake in the rm -rf command (i accidently removed my whole /etc mape lucly for my it was on a testing server pfffff)
So i searched for a sort of recycle bin i even started writing my own. but i was quick stranded but then i found the "trash" project on freshmeat nice project but that give me the error libimport error libtrash (ya i got libtrash installed)

2B or not 2B (a pro)

There's no error at all in the ./configure output?

Not that i see, also the log doesent show me anything, but it is in a constant loop

So i think there is the problem but i dont know why or how to solve (i tought i did remember i had this problem back like a year also on the maildrop package)
