Here's the trouble:

It seems, for whatever reason, that autoconf can't actually build with
the event.h header you have.  It seems to be including both config.h
and compat/sys/queue.h, neither of which is installed.  (Neither of
these is included by standard libevent.)  Also, there are some syntax

To fix this, I'd check out what recent versions of libevent do with

I'm still not sure what causes the autoconf bug though.  The configure
