Typical symptom when linking 'classic' (= --without-innodb) is:

cxx -DMYSQL_SERVER -DDEFAULT_MYSQL_HOME="\"/usr/local/mysql\"" -DDATADIR="\"/usr/local/mysql/data\"" -DSHAREDIR="\"/usr/local/mysql/share/mysql\"" -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../zlib -I../include -I../regex -I.  -I../extra    -O3 -DDBUG_OFF -O4 -pthread -ansi_alias -fast -inline speed -noexceptions -nortti   -DUNDEF_HAVE_GETHOSTBYNAME_R -DSNPRINTF_RETURN_TRUNC -I/usr/include/cxx -I/usr/include/cxx_cname -I/usr/include -I/usr/include.dtk -c -o mysqld.o mysqld.cc
cxx: Warning: mysqld.cc, line 2155: statement is unreachable
  return(0);                                    /* purecov: deadcode */
cxx: Error: mysqld.cc, line 4419: identifier "innobase_use_checksums" is
Disable with --skip-innodb-checksums.", (gptr*) &innobase_use_checksums,
cxx: Info: 1 error detected in the compilation of "mysqld.cc".
gmake[4]: *** [mysqld.o] Error 1

or, as gcc writes it:
gcc -DMYSQL_SERVER -DDEFAULT_MYSQL_HOME="\"/usr/local/mysql\"" -DDATADIR="\"/usr/local/mysql/data\"" -DSHAREDIR="\"/usr/local/mysql/share/mysql\"" -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../zlib -I../include -I../regex -I.  -I../extra    -O3 -DDBUG_OFF    -fno-implicit-templates -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti -c -o mysqld.o mysqld.cc
mysqld.cc:4418: `innobase_use_checksums' was not declared in this scope
mysqld.cc:4420: `innobase_use_checksums' was not declared in this scope
make[4]: *** [mysqld.o] Error 1

This is a build based on changeset
  1.1771 05/01/13 15:10:12 lenz@mysql.com +1 -0
  - keep 5.0.3-alpha version string (after-merge fix)

How to repeat:
Try to build '--without-innodb'.

Suggested fix:
Guard the lines by an  '#ifdef HAVE_INNOBASE_DB'.
