You can ask here, or you can ask on freenode IRC on the #ntp or #ntp-dev

If it compiled without error the only thing I can think of is that you
are running that binary on a different architecture or you are trying to
run the libtool wrapper instance of sntp from the wrong location.

Did you "make check install"?

Those are normal.

If the visible output from "configure" doesn't complain it should be OK.
