You are supposed to type

./configure linux

not

./configure [<arch>]

And in addition, I doubt you put root where you said you did. What you 
want to do is type

export ROOTSYS=/path/to/root

where /path/to/root might be

/home/laura/root

or something else. It is supposed to be the directory where you 
installed all the files for root.

Best,

Jim
