Are you reconfiguring in a directory where you already ran configure?
If so, then remove config.cache and try again.

Not without more information.
Can you find out why configure fails to find the libraries?
Some hints:

- Watch the output of configure to make sure it really does miss them
- Look in config.log to see what precisely is failing
  config.log records the command line and program text for each
  compilation test.

Good luck,
