I'm going through the Unix installation instructions located at
http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/doc/mrtg-unix-guide.en.html for an
installation on a Debian Linux box. Everything works fine until I get to
the step for MRTG Compilation. When I run the ./configure command, I get
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c

** Ooops, one of many bad things happened:
a) You don't have the GD library installed.
Get it from http://www.boutell.com, compile it and
use either --with-gd-lib=DIR and --with-gd-inc=DIR to specify
its location. You might also have to use --with-z-inc,
--with-z-lib and --with-png-inc, --with-png-lib for gd
versions 1.6 and higher. Check config.log for more
information on the problem.
b) You have the GD library installed, but not the gd.h
header file. Download the source (see above) and use
--with-gd-inc=DIR to specify where the file can be found.
c) You have the library and the header file installed, but
you also have a shared GD library in the same directory.
Remove the shared library files and/or links (e.g.
libgd.so.2.0.0, libgd.so and libgd.so.2). This is especially
likely if you're using a recent (post 1.8.4) version of GD
and didn't configure it with --disable-shared.
d) You have gd library installed and also it's headers, but you are
missing libpng (and headers) or freetype (and headers)
(mrtg does not use freetype, but if your copy of gd is
against it, you have to install it ...
Consider following the instructions in doc/mrtg-unix-guide.txt
The gd section of the installation completed with no errors. Has anyone
else run into this or know of a solution? I also looked at the 3rd party
documentation for the Debian install, but the paths don't match up with
what's already been done and issuing apt-get install mrtg snmpd returns
an error that it's unable to retrieve the package.
