No.. I didn't notice you suggested that.. in any case, I searched with 
yum and found that I miss glibc-devel-2.5-65.i386, while I already have 
installed glibc-2.5-65.i686 besides the x86_64 packages

At present, as an experiment, I'm trying to build after a reconfigure 
with --disable-multilib.. but after that is finished I'll try again 
installing the missing i386 package and configure with multilib support

do I have to remove the build directory or a make distclean would be enough?

Yes, you're right.. but this is a cluster execution node.. and even if I 
rm -rf / I can reinstall it in 15 minutes :-)

Thank you and best regards,
