I downgraded to libfprint to 0.7 as anything newer seems not to work with fprint_demo. Please report if you have any issues.

Please also note that modern applications should not use libfprint directly, the usage of which this package demonstrates. The fprint website says:

libfprint is of prime interest to developers wishing to add support for specific fingerprinting hardware.

fprintd … is the software developers will want to integrate with to add fingerprint authentication to OSes, desktop environments and applications.

fprint_demo is obsolete. Most features are integrated into fprintd’s helpers, and libfprint has an examples section.

Please ask upstream for a new release, or just use frpint_demo-git which builds fine.

The build failed with several deprecation warnings and an error:
