Hi Antti,

I had a similar issue working with the new build system in SVN trunk 
which was solved by using the standard CPPFLAGS/LDFLAGS variable to 
correctly set the search path for the compiler and linker.

If you do a "CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib 
./configure" when building PostGIS, does it get any further? If not, 
you'll need to post a copy of the configure output and config.log 
somewhere where we can take a look at them.
