it was written for a specific ubuntu/debian flavor and not tested 
elsewhere.   autoconf is a gnarly thing, the scripts for it need to be 
carefully developed, just because what you do with it works on a single 
platform does NOT automatically mean it will work on all platforms.

its possible you're missing one or more -devel packages for something it 
needs.  its possible its looking for stuff in debian specific locations 
and on EL they are somewhere else.  its possible it depends on some 
specific version of a system library or developer tool or whatever and 
EL5/6 uses a different version.

I note there's a source package on that AVR site, it might be worth 
trying to build from there.   optimally, get that to build, then package 
it as an RPM, and get it into one of the more popular repositories, and 
all that 'repos are bad' nonsense goes away.
