=> this is a failure in the AC_CHECK_HEADERS macro

=> it can be from something not related, for instance a bad compilation
flag from a previous configure action. You should look at the config.log
file to understand exactly what happened.

=> in fact log4cplus is not optional (only enable-xxx makes xxx optional
for sure). Perhaps the name should be more --with-log4cplus-path but
it is clarly a bit long and IMHO not an improvement....
