Try just removing libsubunit-dev. That is the package which installs the 
include files.

I think this is the case where configure finds an optional dependency 
because it has harcoded paths to /usr/include and the such, while the 
LFS toolchain only searchs into /tools.

Whether --disable-subunit should be in the book, I do not know.
