linux/aio_abi.h is not checked or used in any released version of libev,
so you must be using a CVS checkout, is this correct? If not, where did
you get your copy?

CVS does not contain a ./configure file, so where is your configure file

When building for CVS, you indeed first need to generate a configure
script by running autogen.sh. The release tarballs would contain all the
necessary files pregenarated, and its configure scirpt should work.

So in short, in a release tarball, ./configure should work. In a CVS
checkout, there shouldn't be a configure script.
