I made some progress. Installing CSWpkgconfig fixed the ./configure
problem. I have a patch for nfs.c, which I'll send shortly. I'm
currently facing a problem with conflicting defines in headers. Here's
the error message:

The culprit is probably /usr/sfw/include/net-snmp/net-snmp-config.h
which shouldn't define the macro, but it does, and I can't change it.
At collectd, the macro is not used for anything, maybe it can be
removed altogether?
