I think something is not OK in your system.  Under normal circumstances 
(i.e. on a properly set up system), at least on an x86_64/amd64-based 
machine running Ubuntu, HiPE will be enabled by default so you do not 
need the --enable-hipe flag.  (And you would not need to specify 
--enable-m64-build either.)

I recommend getting a fresh tar ball (*) and executing the following 
sequence of commands:

	./otp_build autoconf
	make			# add -j too if you want

And tell us what happened.


(*) By the way, why did you choose R16B02 instead of a newer system like 
R16B03-1 if not 17.0 ?
