There are so many things you have to do to solve the 'problem' you got:

1) inspect your Makefile:
  less Makefile
2) proceed to next step if the problem still remain.
3) learn a bit about how 'make' works:
  pinfo make
    read a section: "* Invoking make: Running."
4) re-run make to see if the problem still remain:
  make; echo $?
    if you do not know anything about "$?", run 'man bash' and 
    read a section "Special Parameters".
5) proceed to next step if the problem still remain.
6) learn a lot about how 'make' works:
  pinfo make
    read entire document.
7) proceed to next step if the problem still remain.
8) correct the problem by yourself:
  vi Makefile
9) proceed to next step only if really the problem still remain.
10) forget about MRTG or anything requires you to compile it.

Hope this helps,

 1) Basically, it is a bad idea to run 'configure', or 'make' 
   under privileged account like 'root' (except make install).
   There are so many pricks, like me :), on the net.
