There was a dumper problem that has now been worked around
by building with "setarch i386" in emacs-21.3-7. But the
problem you describe below during configure looks quite
different from that...

Emacs cvs head's configure runs fine for me on my box here

Does config.log give you any clues?
I didn't have gcc installed ... erk.
I was a victim of one of those upgrades that leaves some packages
out. .. There have been several reports of that.
But even after installing gcc, I still get a segfault during dumping.
You mentioned `setarch i386'. How does one set that during build?
Doesn't seem to be a configure flag.
Results in a segfault when dumping at the end:
