glusterfs-coreutils uses pkg-config to get the location from the headers
and the additional compile/link options. You will need a
glusterfs-api.pc file under /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/ (or similar). This
command should list glusterfs-api when all is right:

  $ pkg-config --list-all

I do not know how Ubuntu packages are providing development files, so I
can not really give you more details than this.
