It's impossible to tell from the summary information which the
configure script writes to the terminal; you need to examine the
config.log file for the actual error message.

The PROJ.4 issue isn't particularly critical; it's only relevant if
you want to create a new location using an EPSG code (the
--with-proj-share= option specifies the directory in which to look for
the file of EPSG codes).
