I sometimes see problem like this when I have made changes in the libsndfile
internal headers and the Makefile doesn't pick up the dependancies properly.

My suggestion is to follow these steps:

   1) Delete you current libsndfle source tree all together.
   2) Untar/gunzip a new tree.
   3) ./configure
   4) make
   5) make check

Also make sure to check the output of the ./configure.

Report back what you find :-).
