Mac problem(?), new build, --with-debug-level=slowdebug

Problem solved: /Developer consider harmful, at least on Mountain Lion.
Removing that and using the compilers installed by XCode in /usr/bin did the trick.
HOWEVER - it seems dubious to me that configure should ignore the environment specification of CXX.
I tried the following,
where /usr/local/bin/g++ is a 4.8.0 compiler that configure will accept if it appears first on the path
(this does not lead to a happy build, it merely demonstrates that the compiler is acceptable to configure):
(1) sh ./configure CXX=/usr/local/bin/g++
(2) CXX=/usr/local/bin/g++ sh ./configure
I tried (2) because of ambiguous language from sh ./configure -help:
To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as
VAR=VALUE. See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.
I understand that environment variable bindings precede the command on the command line,
but the instructions did not say this explicitly, so I tried it both ways.
I verified that my "sh" is not doing anything non-standard with its environment:
bash-3.2$ CXX=/usr/local/bin/g++ sh -c printenv | grep CXX
In both cases this was the result of the configure:
