That doesn't look right, libraries should be in /usr/lib, and there
should certainly not be 281 files in /etc/collectd/

RHEL 7 uses systemd. There's a systemd unit in contrib/ that you can copy.
Alternatively, just use the binary collectd rpms from EPEL which
handle all this for you, although I'm not sure if there are EPEL
builds for system-z.
If not, rebuilding from the EPEL srpm is probably the easiest way forward.
