I just ran into this again and did some diving. Turns out it's a little
obscure error that configure didn't catch before this.

It looks like the configure check for g++ is broken, and it mistakenly
thinks you have it installed. Then when it uses that in the botan check,
things break and it is blamed on botan.

The fix is:

yum install gcc-c++
