If you're not willing to use dpkg-buildpackage, I strongly recommend
that you add the following configure options:

     --disable-libblkid --disable-libuuid --disable-fsck --disable-uuidd

... especially if you are building with shared libraries.  Otherwise,
you'll be building with one version of the shared libraries, and
running with a different shared libraries.
