As far as I can tell, libstatgrab is optional, no plugin has a hard
requirement on this library.

Referring to the README, it's used "by various plugins to collect
statistics on systems other than Linux and/or Solaris."

The debian package for 5.2 isn't built against libstatgrab and all the
plugins mentioning this lib in their source code are part of the package
and are working as expected. I would be surprised if it was any different
on RHEL.

I'm going to update PR#220 accordingly !
