The subprocess output shows at the end:

So, it seems when you try to run kpsewhich from the configure script, 
it runs tcsh (your default shell maybe?) but startup initialisation of 
tcsh fails.

Possible here is that your tcsh setup is broken system-wide, but that 
you have repaired this in your own home directory with a .login or 
.cshrc file. This personal repair will not be available to the TeX 
i-Package as it runs as user root.
