[Nagiosplug-help] Need help with check_snmp PERL dependency Net::SNMP

Thanks in advance everyone for your assistance with this problem:


I'm preparing a nagios / nagios plugins binary install package for a
controlled production Redhat environment. What I mean by that is, since
we don't want to compile code on production servers, and since an RPM
doesn't exist for nagios_plugins I need to make a script that takes all
the binaries and puts them in the same folder for our Redhat
environment, which is universally RH4. To get check_snmp to compile, I
need to install Net::SNMP and net-snmp-utils. I have found matching RPMs
from the Redhat website and have installed the packages successfully.
Yet, when I ./configure the nagios-plugins-1.4.11 I still get this



checking for snmpget... /usr/bin/snmpget

checking for snmpgetnext... /usr/bin/snmpgetnext

configure: WARNING: Tried /usr/bin/perl - install Net::SNMP perl module
if you want to use the perl snmp plugins



But, according to RPM, the dependency is successfully installed:


sysadmin at webapp21 nagios-plugins-1.4.11]$ rpm -qa | grep snmp






What should I do next to make the ./configure script recognize that
Net::SNMP is in fact installed?
