The number "11.2.0" means nothing in the Erlang world.

erts/configure failed to detect working floating-point exceptions
on your machine, and without them, HiPE/x86 won't link.

You can:
a) debug erts/configure (the embedded fpe-test.c program), figure
   out why it doesn't work, and repair it, or
b) ignore the FP problem and ./configure --disable-hipe.

Your choice, but clearly a) is preferred.
