For me it fails in a slightly different way. It is also json-c that fails, but going to that directory and doing an autoreconf, configure and make (install) solves the problem for me.

Try autoreconf -fi in the json-c directory.

That fixed it. However it has a problem here now:
g++: ../../../vendor/lua/src/.libs/liblua.a: No such file or directory

Output from ./configure command:
=== configuring in vendor/lua (/home/mta/mta_101/source/vendor/lua)
configure: WARNING: no configuration information is in vendor/lua
=== configuring in vendor/json-c (/home/mta/mta_101/source/vendor/json-c)
./configure: line 2271: C: command not found

And lines 2270-2272 in ./vendor/json-c/configure are:

Tried with Debian 5 and it compiles and runs fine now.

Two special things I had to do:

  • Install sparsehash:
    cd vendor/sparsehash/current
    autoreconf -fi
    make install
    cd ../../..

  • Jiggle json-c:
    cd vendor/json-c
    autoreconf -fi
    cd ../..

This is due to a bug in autoconf that prevents it from recursing into the vendor/lua and vendor/json-c directories to (re)generate the configure file. Since these directories already ship with a generated configure file (that may differ in version from the installed autoconf), problems can occur on certain distro's/configurations such as Debian Lenny.
