There are no --with-wpa_supplicant and --with-dhcdbd configure flags anymore.

You need wpa_supplicant >= 0.5.8 built with dbus support (see if
wpa_supplicant --help shows '-u' flag). NM doesn't try to start it so
you'll either need to start it manually (as root, with -u) before
running NM or use dbus 1.1.x which has system service activation. (For
that to work, you'll need patches from fedora 8 wpa_supplicant package
until Dan gets them upstream).
