1. The message for an old version would be another;
2. This is a freshly installed machine to which I added ldns through EPEL only.
3. Find / -name libldns\* locates no reachable library beyond the EPEL package.

My guess would be that this is a 64-bit problem, rather than a RHEL problem.
I find it hard to deciper what ./configure does, but it appears that it
does not get all the -L arguments, specifically -L/usr/lib64

Is there a way for me to see in more detail what ./configure does?  I did
not find anything useful in config.log, it ends just before this problem:

| #define HAVE_SETRESUID 1
| #define HAVE_SETRESGID 1
| #define RESTART_ENFORCERD_CMD "/usr/bin/pkill -HUP ods-enforcerd"
| #define HAVE_LIBXML2 1
| configure: exit 1
