I don't know exactly what is going wrong here, but I've usually found
it's impossible to troubleshoot these kinds of issues without reading
config.log and the configure script itself.  If you're able to figure
out (either from config.log, or from reproducing it) exactly what the
error message it's getting when trying to compile those headers is,
you may be able to figure out what's gone wrong.

I personally find this the most annoying thing about autoconf.  My
personal bugbear is when it says "you don't have package X installed"
and I'm like "yeah I do", and then after ten minutes of pouring
through the logs I realize "oh, you're looking for the bits that are
only in the -devel package".  It would make life a lot easier if it
would say something like "you don't have package X installed (as
judged by the fact that I couldn't compile with #include <wumpus.h>)".
 But it doesn't.
