export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/bin/lib/pkgconfig
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/bin/lib:/usr/lib
export INSTALL_DIR=/usr/local/bin
export PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin/bin:$PATH

Error am getting for Xymon installation is

[oracle@localhost xymon-4.3.5]$ ./configure

Configuration script for Xymon

This script asks a few questions and builds a Makefile to compile Xymon

Checking your make-utility
Checking pre-requisites for building Xymon

Checking for fping ...
Xymon has a built-in ping utility (xymonping)
However, it is not yet fully stable and therefore it
may be best to use the external fping utility instead.
I could not find fping on your system
Do you want to use xymonping [Y/n] ?
OK, I will use xymonping.

Checking for RRDtool ...
RRDtool include- or library-files not found. These are REQUIRED for Xymon
RRDtool can be found at
If you have RRDtool installed, use the "--rrdinclude DIR" and "--rrdlib DIR"
options to configure to specify where they are.
[oracle@localhost xymon-4.3.5]$

As Error says we need to include --rrdinclude and --rrdlib

[oracle@localhost xymon-4.3.5]$ ./configure --rrdinclude=/usr/local/bin/bin --rrdlib=/usr/local/bin/lib
[oracle@localhost xymon-4.3.5]

I but dont see Xymon installation to be running ..

Kindly guide me.

It looks like xymon uses an older version of rrdtool ..
There are no rpm packages for i386, version 4.3.10.
And no rpm packages at all for zymon-4.3.5 ..
.. If you have a 64bits OS (EL5) :
The sourceforge "4.3.10 packages" can be installed.

Example, building xymon-4.3.10 on EL5 :
0) rpm -Uvh fping-3.2-0.src.rpm ; 0a) rpmbuild -bb fping.spec
Install fping : # yum localinstall --nogpgcheck fping-3.2-0.i386.rpm
1) # yum localinstall --nogpgcheck perl-rrdtool-1.2.30-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
.. yum will automatically install rrdtool version 1.2.30 from "rpmforge.repo"
2) # yum localinstall --nogpgcheck rrdtool-devel-1.2.30-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
3) rpm -Uvh rrdtool-1.2.30-1.rf.src.rpm
4) rpmbuild -bb xymon.spec ( ? Edit line 40 in to: USEXYMONPING=n \ )
.... and the build result :
Wtote: /home/knudfl/rpms/RPMS/i386/xymon-4.3.10-1EL5.i386.rpm
Wrote: /home/knudfl/rpms/RPMS/i386/xymon-client-4.3.10-1EL5.i386.rpm
( Line 3 in xymon.spec can be edited to e.g. : Release: 1EL5 )
