It looks like your autoreconf is treating warnings as errors.

Beginning with a patch in 2013-10-13, in configure.ac, it does indeed
have the "-Werror" flag enabled in this line

  AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([1.11.1 silent-rules foreign -Wall -Werror])

You might remove the "-Wall -Werror" text of that line in
configure.ac, and that could fix it.

I haven't tried it, though.
