First, the error you are seeing is altivec-related, but you said you
disabled altivec, so I'd guess it is an old configuration lying around.
Do a 'make clean' or even 'make distclean'.

A couple of comments:
1. You should definitely NOT use --enable-vector on a PowerPC CPU. It
is only intended for vector machines like Cray. Nobody uses these
anymore for MD, so I'm not even sure the code complies with it enabled.
I know that Apple keep saying that Altivec is "a vector unit", but it
is really a SIMD unit, not vector :-) And ... you're aware that the
last option you use disable the Altivec code, right?
2. I don't think it works to compile fully statically by default on a
Mac. Some of the system libraries are only available as dynamic libs,
unless you go against their recommendation and download the static
version from darwin.
Everything works fine for me, with LAM 7.0.3, FFTW 2.1.5, OS X 10.3.1
and the standard Panther developer tools.
