FWIW, I managed to get into a state where I ran into this error too;
after a sequence of fairly random steps, it went away, and I wasn't
able to reproduce it again.  I have no idea what I did to get there in
the first place, nor what I did to fix it.

Zhihao: I think if you make a clean copy of the repo and run
./configure again, the problem will probably go away.
