Ok, I went down that path, building the latest gmail with PREFIX=$HOME/usr

Then, simplifying a bit here, I fetched ..

curl | tar xz
curl | tar xzb

and configured

./configure --prefix=$HOME/usr --with-include=$HOME/usr/include --with-lib=$HOME/usr/lib --with-dynlib=$HOME/usr/lib

and when I go to make execline I get

make: *** No rule to make target '-lskarnet', needed by 'background'. Stop.

and I note

$ grep -e ' -l' p*/deps.mak | head -3
background: src/execline/background.o ${LIBEXECLINE} -lskarnet
backtick: src/execline/backtick.o ${LIBEXECLINE} -lskarnet
cd: src/execline/cd.o -lskarnet

Which, while I donít do much work at level of makefiles these days, strikes me as odd.
