This got fixed recently - I came across it by chance. You're
the first person to actually report the problem, so thanks.

This xfsprogs build problem exists in 1.0.1 too, but only if you
- have liblvm.a installed; and
- /usr/include/linux/* headers don't match the 2.4.x kernel headers.
The liblvm headers seem to include alot of kernel headers, and
we have copies of some of the lvm headers in our tree - these only
get used if "configure" finds liblvm.a though.
