Your xmlrpc-c version is probably out of date. See this ticket: http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/ticket/1593. Remove libxmlrpc-c3-dev libxmlrpc-c3 and get a copy of xmlrpc-c from SVN and use that. You may need to install svn.

$ cd ~/
$ svn checkout http://xmlrpc-c.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/xmlrpc-c/advanced xmlrpc-c
$ cd xmlrpc-c
$ ./configure --disable-cplusplus
$ gmake
$ gmake install
