   I had similar problems, and heres how I fixed them...
Configure is nice, but doesn't seem to find everything that is there. So 
look in config.cache and jot down all the files it looked for, and marked 
as "no". Then either whereis them, or check the man pages for their 
existance on your machine. If you can find them, change those lines to 
read "yes", then rerun make. I found two that config missed...
