[smokeping-users] problem building on RHEL

On RHEL 6.6, I downloaded and installed RRDtool-1.5.3; I did a make and make install, and all seemed to work OK and the example programs work correctly. RRDtool is installed in /export/appl/rrdtool-1.5.3.

My Perl is V5.20.2 in /usr/local/bin/perl:
# which perl

# perl -v

This is perl 5, version 20, subversion 2 (v5.20.2) built for x86_64-linux


When I attempt to build Smokeping 2.6.11, the configure fails with the following:

checking checking for perl module 'RRDs'... Can't locate loadable object for module RRDs in @INC (@INC contains: /export/appl/smokeping-2.6.11/thirdparty/lib/perl5 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.20.2/x86_64-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.20.2 /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.20.2/x86_64-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.20.2 .) at -e line 1.
Compilation failed in require at -e line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.

However, searching in /usr/local/lib/perl5, I find the following, so I'm puzzled!
# perl -e 'print join( "\n", at INC);'

# find . -name RRD*

# ll ./site_perl/5.20.2/x86_64-linux/RRDs.pm
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 6020 Jun  3 15:23 ./site_perl/5.20.2/x86_64-linux/RRDs.pm

# ll ./site_perl/5.20.2/RRDp.pm
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 5497 Jun  3 15:26 ./site_perl/5.20.2/RRDp.pm


I tried setting PERL5LIB= /export/appl/rrdtool/lib/perl as suggested, but got the same error...

Any suggestions?
