that does sound as if `librrd' wasn't found/used. Did you configure
collectd before and forget to do a `make clean' before building it, the
second time *with* linking to librrd? I've had problems like this
several times..

If that doesn't solve your problem, could provide the output of both,
`./configure' and `make all', as well as the files `src/config.h' and
`config.log'? Preferably tar'ed and zip'ed. If you can't upload them to
anywhere please send that to me directly, the list will most likely drop
it due to it's size.
