Try running ./configure --help  It should spit out available options  
to use while running configure.  One of them should be a config line  
to specify where certain libraries are if they can't be found in your  
system $PATH.  I'm not sure where OpenCASCADE put its libraries, but  
if you can find that out, you should be able to specify where  
configure should look for them when you compile FreeCAD.
