You need to do two things:

1- 'make install' in the GDAL directory to install it in your system
2- Use --with-gdal=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config (or replace with the path 
where your gdal-config is installed)

However, looking at the build output below it seems that the configure 
didn't find gdal-config, but it did enable GDAL (-DUSE_GDAL) for some 
odd reason:

The configure script should have stopped with an error since GDAL 
headers aren't installed on your system, so there is a problem that 
needs to be fixed here.

Can you please try again using v4.2beta2 and if the problem persists 
then create a bug in the mapserver bugzilla with your complete configure 
command and a note about where GDAL is located on your system so that we 
have a way to reproduce.
