Need help installing NASA's Vision Workbench


I downloaded NASA’s vision workbench 2 which is in it’s third beta stage.

According to the install guide I should run ./configure from the ‘base directory of the source distribution’. I reckon I should do that from a terminal. I write

sudo ./configure

as the install guide tells me. And I get this error message:

jacob@linux-hfvh:~/Install/VisionWorkbench-2.0_beta3> sudo ./configure
root's password:
checking build system type... Invalid configuration `x86_64-unknown-linux-': machine `x86_64-unknown-linux' not recognized
configure: error: /bin/sh config/config.sub x86_64-unknown-linux- failed

Can anyone help me figure this one out. I think its because I’m running 64bit system and the program expects a 32bit system. I don’t know what to do about that.

I’m using OpenSuSe 11.1 64-Bit.
