I was trying to build xfsprogs in preparation for building xfstests in
an hermetic environment (as opposed to depending on magic XFS headers
being installed in /usr/include...)

What I found first of all (building on Ubuntu 10.10) was

a) "make configure" doesn't work until I patch the top-level Makefile:

diff --git a/Makefile b/Makefile
index c40fb2c..37973f5 100644
--- a/Makefile
+++ b/Makefile
@@ -82,7 +82,7 @@ configure:
        libtoolize -c $(LIBTOOLIZE_INSTALL) -f
        cp include/install-sh .
        aclocal -I m4
-       autoconf
+       autoconf -I m4
 include/builddefs: configure
        ./configure $$LOCAL_CONFIGURE_OPTIONS

b) By default xfsprogs builds with DEBUG, and this causes building
libxfs/xfs_ialloc.c to blow up since there a reference of
xfs_stack_trace() which is undefined under a #ifdef DEBUG.  The way to
fix this is to build with DEBUG=-DNDEBUG, but it took me an hour or
two figure this out....
