Actually, the problem here is twofolds.
It's a mix of quirky test and quirky CFLAGS.
The test the upstream uses is a bit fragile and user's CFLAGS trigger a false negative, due to causing "warning: SSE instruction set disabled, using 387 arithmetics".
No idea about why upstream appends -Werror on purpose after this change:
Looks like there is a reference at:

I can't tell about that particular commit, but as for the failing check that's quite obvious - incompatible function type in C is at most a warning and just about all standard autoconf C compiler warning checks are done via -Werror.
I had this same error when building with-
CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe -Wall -fpic -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=1"
removed -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=1 and it builds and installs.

using -fpic in global CFLAGS is a terrible idea and 100% not supported. it also makes no sense at all.
