And I tried 1.1.4 and got the same.  To fix most of the errors change
line src/thread.cpp:1043 to read "void	Thread::setCancel(Cancel mode)".
 It looks as if they renamed the enum in thread.h, but didn't update
thread.cpp to reflect this.

There's still a problem with src/thread.cpp:98 which can be worked
around by removing either the 'extern "C"' from the beginning of that
line, or the keyword "static". NOTE: I don't have any confidence that
which one of these (if either) is the correct solution though.
Regardless, the build fails later on with a 'cannot find -llthread'.
Methinks the configure script (or config.log) needs further
investigation to see where the real problem is.

Hope this helps a little.
