It's been awhile, but I successfully built gdal with FileGDB support.

My notes indicate I used ./configure --with-fgdb=/home/pnorman/FileGDB_API
and installed files from that location to /usr/local/lib/libFileGDBAPI.so
and /usr/local/lib/libfgdbunixrtl.so, as well as

I believe I installed from svn, and ogrinfo --version reports GDAL 2.0dev,
released 2011/12/29
