Hi Christian,

The configure script that ships with collectd is automatically generated
from `configure.in' using the autotools, especially `autoconf' in this

I'm afraid that pathing `Makefile.in' won't work, because it's
automatically generated, too, using `automake'. `./configure' later uses
the generated `*.in' files to output the final, configured versions.

What arguments did the user use when calling collectd's `configure'-
script? In the ticket I see a lot of unrecognized arguments that won't
have any effect, such as `--with-krb5=/opt/heimdal', but `--docdir=...'
is not among them. You could also try to re-build the `configure'-
script using, e. g. by using this script from the git-repository:

Thanks, I'll fix that immediately.

Just out of curiosity: Why do you/did the user configure all paths to be
somewhere beneath `/opt/collectd', except the `localstatedir', which is
`/var/opt/collectd'? I'd have expected `/opt/collectd/var'.
