Subject: [smokeping-users] Help with PERL5LIB error

I am pulling my hair out here.  I have a new CentOS6.4 install and running into problems installing smokeping.  I'm not sure what to make of this PERL5LIB.  I set it to /usr/bin/perl and still see problems.  Any ideas?

checking checking for gnu make availablility... /usr/bin/gmake is GNU make
checking checking for perl module 'RRDs'... Failed
checking checking for perl module 'FCGI'... Ok
checking checking for perl module 'CGI'... Ok
checking checking for perl module 'CGI::Fast'... Ok
checking checking for perl module 'Config::Grammar'... Ok
checking checking for perl module 'Digest::HMAC_MD5'... Ok
checking checking for perl module 'LWP'... Ok

** Aborting Configure ******************************

   If you know where perl can find the missing modules, set
   the PERL5LIB environment variable accordingly.

   FIRST though, make sure that 'perl' starts the perl
   binary you want to use for SmokePing.

   Now you can install local copies of the missing modules
   by running

     ./setup/build-perl-modules.sh /opt/smokeping/thirdparty

   The RRDs perl module is part of RRDtool. Either use the rrdtool
   package provided by your OS or install rrdtool from source.
   If you install from source, the RRDs module is located
