there is your problem, some application segfaults there.
segfault is short for (memory) segmentation fault. It means a program has tried to access memory that was not allocated to it. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Segmentation_fault

You can tell this is an error as it refers to a line number (probably in the file in the line above). This is to help track down what is causing the error.
This makes no sense to me,

It makes a lot of sense.
Though it's not very revealing. You need to see what the configure script was doing at that point (use the "less" command). It may give you a clue.
what is this?

a bug.
More specifically, it's most likely a bug in the gnome applet. Otherwise it would be in the package repositories. You need to ask in a gnome mailing list (after doing some investigation: see http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html ).
