It looks like some circumstances on your system trigger what I believe
to be a bug in Makefile.am/Makefile.in, while being unable to reproduce
this on my Linux box at home. Anyhow, I uploaded a patch versus
leafnode-1.9.18ma4, that turns it into 1.9.18ma4.1, and that hopefully
fixes the problem. http://mandree.home.pages.de/leafnode/testing/

Martin has been sent the patch in private mail.

NOTE: You only need the patch if you see the same or a very similar
message to the one Martin has reported!

To apply:

1. download and unpack leafnode.1.9.18ma4
2. download the patch, if you downloaded the gz, verify the signature
2b. unpack the patch (only applies if you downloaded the gz)
3. apply the patch:
  3.1 cd /where/you/unpacked/leafnode.1.9.18ma4 (replace the path!)
  3.2 patch -p1 </where/you/saved/leafnode-1.9.18ma4-to-1.9.18ma4.1-patch
      (again, replace the path)
4. continue as usual, ./configure --with --your --options && make
