I tried all possible combinations and here is my conclusion
1) configure needs PKG_CONFIG_PATH to be set. Otherwise it can't find some
of the libraries
2) As you say, no other options to configure are needed. But the compilation
fails for me when it
comes to xdemos. Though LibGL.so refers to libXdamage, the linker picks
it up from /usr/lib.
If i set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in addition, then it works fine.
