It looks like the problem is simply the creation of a symbolic link already existing. Try to do
Code:
make distclean
from /home/jayam/Cloud_Setup/xmlrpc/xmlrpc-c-1.06.32 (this should remove the links) and start again with the ./configure step.

Difficult to say, what is wrong, but three things :
1) Never, never run 'make' as root, unless absolute necessary ! ! !

2) And use a simpler location like /home/jayam/tmp :
cd tmp/ ... tar xvf xmlrpc-c-1.06.32.tgz and start from scratch.

See my result, the attached text file, I think it's from
about line 27 ... and I find no
" ... creating symbolic link `srcdir' to ... "

3) May be update your "auto tools" ? ( automake, autoconf, m4 )
I am using CentOS 5.2 = Redhat EL 5.2 .
