Finally got time to work on this and happy to report that the  compile was successful for 9.16.3 on RHEL 7.X. 

What it needed was just the installation of  libuv-devel package to be installed on RHEL 7.X

So basically addition of two libuv packages on RHEL 7.X resolved the compile issue for me.

Now moving to address the issue on RHEL 6.X.

This package contains just the runtime library. However, in order to compile code that links against libuv, you need the "libuv-devel"
package. Besides "libuv-devel", you also need some other packages to build and run BIND properly.

However, seeing as you're stumbling on even this basic step, I'd advise you not to compile BIND. You're better off using packages made by other experienced people. The packages also contain additional files, such as systemd unit files, that make it easy to run BIND. For CentOS, have a look at:
