I assume you have also verified the Flex version (2.5.4a or newer).
Probably, your compiler isn't setup to search in /usr/local/ by
default. Try setting CPPFLAGS to /usr/local/include/.
Don't forget to remove config.cache before you rerun configure.

Check that you have teTeX installed and that the corresponding
binaries are in the PATH. The command 'kpsewhich' should always
be present if you have teTeX installed, so that's why I suspect
you may not have it. Even if you have teTeX installed, I've heard
about teTeX installations that don't include Metafont and the 
Kpathsea library, so if you're unlucky you may have to add those.
