Because nothing has *changed* as far as preparing and installing.

There really since nothing special, download the SDK, add the SDK to
your paths, you might need some drivers, after you do all that, call it
a day and blow up your phone.  Just so you know, the only phone on the
market that can be unbricked is the original Droid, no other phone has
been given the luxury of a source image.

Well, it would help if I could see your ./configure command, and then
tell me exactly what you are trying to compile and for what reason.  The
SDK does not need to be compiled this is why I'm asking exactly what
you're trying to do, so give me some more diagnostics if you don't mind.
 Send me the source if it's a GNU project and your configure line and
I'll see if I can't chroot reproduce it and help you go through
diagnostics.  Also, do you have the dev Java installed?
