how did you install collectd and libsensors?

There are two versions of libsensors. collectd can work with both, but
once it's been built it needs the version that was present at build
time. Under Debian the correct version is only "recommended" (not
"depended" upon), so depending on your system config you may end up with
the incorrect version.

If you don't provide a <Plugin sensors> block, the plugin will collect
statistics about all sensors. This is okay for a first step – you can
always ignore unnecessary sensors later.
