You probably need to check config.log to see what the actual error is.

But as a sidenote, in some circumstances G_asprintf is/was/will be 
implemented as a macro (replaced by a call to the system asprintf()) and 
not a function in libgrass_gis.so, so it is not a very good choice as a 
typical GRASS function to test for in the configure script. Perhaps 
G_gisinit() would be better, or some function that the GDAL GRASS plugin 
directly uses.
