A cross-compile problem

I'm using Sigma Designs SMP8634 board with MIPS "4KeC" processor and
uclinux (2.4.30).
Cross-compiling cURL from a RedHat 9.0, I had problem specifying
target/host and got error running
I think I need some enlightenment on this one.

The file:
#! /bin/sh

    export PATH=$PATH:/root/work/toolchain/bin
    export CPPFLAGS="-I/root/work/toolchain/include"
    export AR=mipsel-linux-uclibc-ar
    export AS=mipsel-linux-uclibc-as
    export LD=mipsel-linux-uclibc-ld
    export RANLIB=mipsel-linux-uclibc-ranlib
    export CC=mipsel-linux-uclibc-gcc
    export NM=mipsel-linux-uclibc-nm
    export STRIP=mipsel-linux-uclibc-strip

    ./configure \
         --target=mipsel-linux \
         --host=mipsel-linux \
         --build=i386-redhat-linux-gnu \
         --prefix=/usr/curl \
         --exec-prefix=/usr/curl \
         --disable-ares \
         --disable-cookies \
         --disable-crypto-auth \
         --disable-ipv6 \
         --enable-hidden-symbols \

The run result:

bash-2.05b# ./
