If you actually look in the logs, its quite apparent whats wrong. The
configure attempts to link the summary test with libraries that do not
exist on the hosts. I imagine this would be easy enough to fix with a 
couple tweaks to the configure to make less assumptions.

According to the build farm it is broken on OpenBSD & older FreeBSDs
due to -lroken not being found and on one RH 7.2 machine with -lkrb5.
You can probably hand tweak it for your build until it gets fixed in
tree (I would assume someone will fix it before too long as its 
pretty obviously broken.) I did this a while back when I was trying
to build samba-cvs on my OpenBSD machine for some testing.. very 
easy to fix but it was still busted in compilation stages with other
problems so I dropped it. I believe I reported the configure bustage
back then as well and it was fixed for a bit.
