Only one dot: ./configure
Two dots makes the shell think you're trying to source a file called ./configure, as in trying to read a file into memory like a $PATH or something.

Also, these commands should not be run with "sudo", you are compiling a program locally so do it as you, not root..

The only step you need elevated privileges for is the installation (or, "make install").
