ovsdbmonitor has some additional requirements, beyond those required for
OVS itself.  They are listed in INSTALL.Linux under "Installation
Requirements".  You can tell whether these requirements were detected by
looking in config.log.  It should say something like:

    configure:5564: checking for pyuic4
    configure:5575: result: pyuic4
    configure:5584: checking for PySide.QtCore Python module
    running /usr/bin/python -c 'import PySide.QtCore
    import sys
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
    ImportError: No module named PySide.QtCore
    configure:5601: result: no
    configure:5604: checking for PyQt4.QtCore Python module
    running /usr/bin/python -c 'import PyQt4.QtCore
    import sys
    configure:5621: result: yes
    configure:5624: checking for twisted.conch.ssh Python module
    running /usr/bin/python -c 'import twisted.conch.ssh
    import sys
    configure:5641: result: yes
    configure:5644: checking for twisted.internet Python module
    running /usr/bin/python -c 'import twisted.internet
    import sys
    configure:5661: result: yes
    configure:5664: checking for twisted.application Python module
    running /usr/bin/python -c 'import twisted.application
    import sys
    configure:5681: result: yes
    configure:5684: checking for json Python module
    running /usr/bin/python -c 'import json
    import sys
    configure:5701: result: yes
    configure:5704: checking for zope.interface Python module
    running /usr/bin/python -c 'import zope.interface
    import sys
    configure:5721: result: yes
    configure:5734: checking whether to build ovsdbmonitor
    configure:5736: result: yes

The final result ("checking whether to build ovsdbmonitor") depends on
whether the components above it could be found.
