Nobody here is a mindreader (or are they?), so do tell what the error is?

What mDNS system is on your system... rendezvous/bonjour, etc. ... is
configure correctly picking it up?

Quick and dirty: don't bother with mDNS (unless you really really need to
use it - I've had a lot of problems getting it to work and in the end I
hacked xinetd to do the mDNS stuff rather than CVSNT - which means mDNS is
available for all my xinetd run services)... ./configure --disable-mdns

Try latest testing rather than latest commercial too...
