[erlang-questions] unable to build valgrind-enabled erlang runtime

Hello List,

I am attempting to build a valgrind-enabled erlang runtime per:
http://www.erlang.org/doc/installation_guide/INSTALL.html#id72660

My platform is an amazon linux machine image on ec2 on which I have already
installed an erlang disribution from source.

I entered the following at the command prompt:

[ emulator]$ env
ERL_TOP=/home/ec2-user/otp_src_R16B02 FLAVOR=smp make valgrind
FLAVOR=$FLAVOR

The following was returned:

make -f x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/Makefile TYPE=valgrind
can't open x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/valgrind/plain/erl_compile_flags.h for
writing at utils/make_compiler_flags line 65.
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ec2-user/otp_src_R16B02/erts/emulator'
if utils/gen_git_version x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/gen_git_version.mk; then
touch beam/erl_bif_info.c; fi
*** valgrind emulator disabled by configure - omitted target all
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ec2-user/otp_src_R16B02/erts/emulator'


What have I done wrong here?  Do I have to run "configure" with special
arguments before building valgrind-enabled runtime?

Any help would be much appreciated!
Kris
