First, get the ebuild file from  
http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/amaya.ebuild.  To use it, you need to set  
up a local overlay.  Instructions are at  
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/overlays/userguide.xml.  Using the ebuild  
allows you to control the configuration using USEflags.  It may be a  
bit more work than compiling directly, but it helps assuring you have  
all dependencies and it is usually easier to upgrade versions.  Also,  
using emerge saves the log of the configure/build process, which helps  
tracking down problems.

OK.  As I see it, that means it is not trying to use the system libwww  
(which you may not have anyway) so something seems to have gone wrong  
during the configuration.  Is there anything in the  
/home/siefke/Downloads/Amaya/obj/libwww directory?  Do you see anything  
in the output of ./configure related to libwww that looks like it might  
be a problem?
