The config.log file will give you some hints as to what dependencies
configure is looking for. Chances are, you probably have to install a Java
development package, probably something like java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel.

Developing against a library generally requires the library as well as the
header files. You might have the library without the header files. config.log
will say what's missing.
