This is from a fresh download and unpack. I also experienced the issue
after a 'make distclean'.

Would you know if/how to update the auto tools stuff? Can I download a

I'm using the tarball libevent-2.0.21-stable.tar.gz dated 2012-11-18.
Do you use the tarballs, or do you pull from version control?
