To build 5.5, you should use the 5.5 documentation, not 5.1.
The build system changed from configure to cmake.
Not sure if it will fix your issue, but at least this should help.
Also, are you sure you want to use version 5.5.0 ?
MySQL 5.5 achieved General Availability (GA) status with MySQL 5.5.8,
which was released for production use on 3 December 2010.
so 5.5.0 is not GA code.
The latest release in the 5.5 version is 5.5.30.
The latest GA release, as of yesterday, is 5.6.10.
