Which would indicate that "configure" exists in the current working
directory, but isn't set executable, at least not for the current user
(you). At least, that's the most likely scenario. If you "chmod 777
./configure", will it work?

So, you are a member of the wheel group, and root has no password set.
You can tell if you are actually "logged in" by typing "id". If there's
no root password, this is not a Good Thing(tm) --- log in as root and
run "chpass". If "su" still doesn't ask you for a password after that,
write the list back, as you likely have a more serious problem.
