I would guess that the macros for libtool are not properly imported by
autogen.sh so the autoconf program has not expanded _LT_DECL when it
created the configure script.
It might be easier to see the cause of it if you posted the lines
around line 6296 in the configure script.
I would expect that the line
autoreconf --verbose --force --install || exit 1
in autogen.sh should get the definitions of all the macros that are needed.
I notice in configure.ac there is no use of libtool macros like
LT_INIT. One thing to do would be to find out where the _LT_DECL has
come from (expansion of another macro?).
