I will consider that soon... However, this recent part is interesting:

"In general, as far as I can tell, this occurs because you have 
explicitly added /usr/local/lib to an environment variable that you feed 
to the ./configure script.  This should not really be necessary, because 
if you let the configure figure out the libraries itself  (aside from 
the ones like postgres or mysql that you specify on a ./configure 
option), it works on all other systems, and never experience this problem."

Do you think perhaps this is the culprit?

# make -V LDFLAGS
