I am really pleased to hear that you have found nsnotifyd helpful!
It's hard to tell if silence is due to happy users or no users :-)

I regret that I am pathologically ignorant about autoconf. I hate using
it to build other people's software so I don't use it in my build systems.
Sorry if my basic Makefile has caused trouble for you.

nsnotifyd is somewhat problematic because it is relatively oldskool C and
relies on the ancient BIND resolver library. (Or the libc resolver if that
works.) I tried to be careful when I wrote it, but its foundations are not
very firm...

[ our house is on the site of an old brickworks, and a map from 1888 shows
there was a water-filled pit somewhere nearby; when they were demolishing
the warehouse at the back of our garden to build flats, our house shook in
sympathy - yeah, the foundations are not very firm! ]
