Hmm.  Do you have in /usr/local/lib?  If so, perhaps you need
to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to include
/usr/local/lib before you run Configure.  Alternatively, perhaps you could
run Configure interactively and be sure that you include the appropriate
-L and -R flags to find

If you want to install as a regular user, then you simply need to be sure
to specify a directory for which you have permission.  You can specify
this with    Configure -Dprefix=/usr/wherever  .  See the INSTALL file for
examples.  Unless I misunderstand what you are trying to do, you don't
need to chown /usr at all.

Hope this helps,
