I don't understand too much about it, but I don't think it looks good.

$ grep -i dbi config.log
   $ ./configure --prefix=/export/gnucash --enable-debug 
--enable-doxygen --enable-locale-specific-tax --enable-error-on-warning 
--enable-compile-warnings --enable-aqbanking --enable-python-bindings 
--enable-dbi --enable-sql

Full log is at http://oss.leggewie.org/wip/config.log

If it is what I think it is (I was missing some packages/libs at compile 
time) then maybe the configure checks could be tuned to detect this better?
