The permissions question is, Does the account running ./configure have
rights to write to the directory where cat to trying to create contest.c?
I'm still betting the answer is No.  

If you peer closely at config.log, I think you'll be able to tell which
directory we're talking about.  If not, I'd try "sh -x configure", using
script(1) to redirect the whole output to a file, and examine that.  The
configure script uses a lot of indirection and isn't the easiest thing in
the world to follow, but it does a fair job of reporting its state.
