I have solved the problem(s).
Firstly, the upgrade to Fedora 16 somehow left me without the allegro-dev  
Next there was an issue with AM_PATH_ALLEGRO which should be sorted via  
aclocal, I think, but that eventually came good...but I'm not sure why!
Finally, I had to point the linker to libm and libpthread, which I did in  
the makefile. I suspect there are better ways of doing that. I think these  
libs are explicitly needed to be defined due to changes in Fedora...a  
Anyway, it is now all sorted.
Finally a postscript, I don't think I specified which version of RPCemu I  
was building. It was v.168. I have tried later versions as they have come  
along, but have always reverted to 168, mainly because it has been quite  
stable and I haven't been happy with the reversion from emufs to hostfs in  
the later versions.
