What is the name of the software that you're trying to install?  Is it written 
in Fortran?

I ask because if you don't need the Fortran interface to the UDUNITS library, 
then you
can just tell the installation procedure to use any known Fortran calling 
convention and you
won't encounter the problem that you had.  For example:

    $ make distclean
    $ CPPFLAGS=-Df2cFortran ./configure >configure.log 2>&1
    $ make >make.log 2>&1

If the software that you need to use does need the Fortran interface, however,
then the above will work only if the Fortran compiler uses the "f2cFortran"
calling conventions.
