As others have stated, apt-get-ting hpijs should solve your problem with
printing, but for instructional purposes:

It looks like the top-level configure is fine ("creating Makefiles" is
generally the final step), but it also invokes other configure scripts
in the source tree. So the top level configure tells you that something
else (which happens to also be called configure) has failed, but has
only logged the (un)successfulness of that other thing. If you wanted to
investigate further, there probably is a completely separate config.log
under the prnt/hpijs directory.
