avidemux 2.0.36 from source install errors Help!

I can't seem to install avidemux. When I run configure I don't get any warning but after make I get this:

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I use this program on a regular basis. The old version (2.0.34) sucks so I really need to get this running.

I tried again with 2.038

I was using a test version of 2.0.34 but it is too unstable.
I followed the instructions from the avidemux site but I keep getting the error below.

What am I doing wrong and I can I do to get this version installed (there are no RPMS for it).
In the error message it says to check the autoconfig directions. I have no idea where this is. I could not find it in any of the install folders.

If you know to install this please help, I really need this program. Thanks!!!
