The test program is inline in the configure script.  It sounds 
like you may have
an old version of the libraries installed somehwere, or that 
your  load libraries are being searched in the wrong order.  To 
see where the system is looking for things, examine 
/etc/ (on RH, anyway),  and try
man ldconfig to find out more.  As the message recommends, look 
for old versions of the required libraries and remove/rename
