I had the same problem, and my 'quick and duck' solution was to 
remove postgis support.  Perhaps this isn't an option for you. 
If you need postgis, read on.

Here is the problem.

Try find how mapserver's config is using pg_config's output, and then 
you should be able to fix the problem, or fix the makefile by hand
after you have configured the mapserver.
