Remove /opt/local/libexec/gnubin from your $PATH; that's where coreutils is
overriding all the system utilities, usually to the great confusion of
configure (which is generally smart enough to look for g<foo> if the system
<foo> isn't good enough).

The whole reason non-prefixed stuff got moved to /opt/local/libexec/gnubin
is that it's a *lovely* way to confuse the heck out of programs.
