[mrtg] 2.16.2 Compile Problem

Yes, someone gave me some useful information.  First off, un-do everything you've done - delete/uninstall mrtg and all the libraries.
It will be easier for me to forward the responses I got that helped me.  I'm not at work where my ubuntu machine lives, so I can't give you any details on what I did.  I can say that I had more trouble running the mrtg configure program even after I got it installed.  In fact, it's still not running.  I think my current problem has to do with the fact that my web site is on a Windows Server 2003 machine, and I'm having problems getting the webroot folder opened up to where Ubuntu can write to it.
The the messages I'm going to forward got mrtg running....

I'm having this exact same issue same versions of ubuntu and mrtg.  Has anyone been able to fix this?

	Trying to do a new install of MRTG 2.16.2 on Ubuntu 9.04; following the instructions in /doc/mrtg-unix-guide.txt. 
	Ubuntu doesn't seem to come with gd, so I downloaded gd-2.0.35, zlib-1.2.3, and libpng-1.2.35. 
	Not an expert but, it looked to me like all the required libraries installed correctly.  When I try: 
	./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mrtg-2 --with-gd=/usr/local/src/gd --with-z=/usr/local/src/zlib --with-png=/usr/local/src/libpng 
	things run to here... 
	checking gd.h usability... yes 
	checking gd.h presence... yes 
	checking for gd.h... yes 
	** Ooops, one of many bad things happened: 
	   a)  You don't have the GD library installed. 
	I do, and I have the correct path in the --with switches. 
	   b)  You have the GD library installed, but not the gd.h header file. 
	Clearly, I do - it's the last line before the fail. 
	   c)  You have the library and the header file installed, but ... didn't configure it with --disable-shared. 
	Yes, I did, and there were no *.so.* or *.so files anywhere I can find. 
	   d)  You have gd library installed and also it's headers, but you are missing libpng (and headers) or freetype (and headers) 
	Both incorrect.  libpng (and headers) installed, gd compiled without freetype. 
	Consider following the instructions in doc/mrtg-unix-guide.txt 
	 Not to seem rude but, that's how I got here! 
	Does anyone have any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong and, more importantly, what to do get back on track?
