While the README indeed suggest to run "autoreconf -s" and then "automake 
--add-missing", this didn't work here either and failed with the same 
errors. But running "autoreconf -si" (w/o an additional "automake" step) 
helped in my case (Linux Debian/Jessie, amd64). This:

$ sudo apt-get install automake g++ gcc icu-devtools libcppunit-dev libtool make naemon-dev pkg-config
$ autoreconf -si && ./configure --prefix=/opt/naemon-livestatus && make

...worked for me.


PS: Installing hardening-{includes,wrapper} and setting 
    DEB_BUILD_HARDENING=1 prints some warn_unused_result warnings, but
    the build succeeds anyway ;-)
BOFH excuse #237:
