[ovs-dev] [PATCH] configure: Properly handle case where libunwind.h is not available.

It is possible that user install libunwind but not libunwind-devel,
and it will run into a compilation error.  So check the existence
of the header file instead of the library.

Fixes: e2ed6fbeb18c ("fatal-signal: Catch SIGSEGV and print backtrace.")
