what happens when you invoke /usr/local/bin/python2.7 and then do

import dns.resolver

Does that succeed or throw ImportError?

If it succeeds, then configure should too as that's what it's doing and
the python it's using.

If it throws ImportError, then something is wrong in that the python at
/usr/local/bin/python2.7 is not able to access the dnspython package.
