autoconf is used by the developers to generate the configure script itself. You can ignore this warning.

The annexc test is expected to fail and can be ignored. As for the others.... are you using a Debian based host by any chance? nptl tests are known to fail on Debian based systems so if you are you can ignore these too.

Does running "make install" generate any errors? If not and there are no other issues than everything looks fine and you can continue.

Good luck! :-)
