If you are sure the failure is by misspathed tools, then you will have to modify configure.ac, acinclude.mp4. You can be inspired by searching for java or xsltproc or similar tools.
If it some of the tools are searched by configure, but their location is not propagated, then they were not found and default is used, or it is serious bug which should be bugzilled.
