Well, mcopidl is a part of KDE and as such is detected on configure time, so
that you can use it in your applications. So the easiest and most correct way
to fix this is to install the package that contains mcopidl. If it is not
in kdelibs (or kdelibs-devel), it might well be in arts (or arts-devel) or
kdelib-sound or something like this.

You might of course be able to fool configure by adding an empty program and
calling it mcopidl, but well, I think you might as well try to find the real
package, that shouldn't be much harder.
