--with-libol option is needed if you didn't install libol itself. If you
did, simply set your path prior to running configure:

PATH=/usr/local/libol/0.3.3/bin:$PATH ./configure --prefix=...

Otherwise do not install libol, and use the configure switch:

./configure --with-libol=../libol-0.3.3 --prefix=...
