This sounds very similar to the problem we discussed with
rrdtool-1.0.17 in the thread titled "Re: problem with compiling rrdtool
1.0.17" (see the list archive), that Tobi has sinced addressed in some

Do you have a "src/.libs/librrd_private.al" at that point in the build
process?  If so, we temporarily worked around the problem on Solaris
with this kludge:

   $ find . -name '*private*' -print
   $ cd src/.libs
   $ ln -s librrd_private.al librrd_private.a # kludge
   $ make
   $ # success!

The exact error message with source line numbers would be helpful to
determine if the code does indeed rely on pointer scaling by doing
addition on pointers to objects of undefined size.

We would need to see the error messages, but I would try the
"--enable-shared" with the suggestion above.
