That looks like an antique RedHat 8.0 kernel, which, assuming the
rest is also RH8-ish would make glibc be glibc-2.3.2 or thereabouts.

Try ./configure --disable-hipe and rebuild. If things work, then the
issue is with the (rather old) kernel and/or glibc you're running.
HiPE/x86 did work on RH8.0 at one point, but it's not something we
test on or support these days.
