The interesting part in your config.log is
libfcgi.so: undefined reference to `frexp'
This means that libfcgi.so depends on the math library (libm), but you didn't
add it to the compile command line (-lm). Please try adding -lm to the
AC_CHECK_LIB macro OTHER-LIBRARIES parameter as follows:
AC_CHECK_LIB([fcgi], [FCGX_InitRequest], [LIBS="$LIBS -lfcgi],
[AC_MSG_WARN("unable to find the FCGX_InitRequest() function")],
