pecl install rrd fails to find my installation of rrdtools which is located in 

I've made sym links for header files to no avail:

ln -s /usr/local/rrdtool-1.4.7/include/rrd.h /usr/include/.
ln -s /usr/local/rrdtool-1.4.7/include/rrd_client.h /usr/include/.
ln -s /usr/local/rrdtool-1.4.7/include/rrd_format.h/usr/include/.

Expected result:
I expect pecl to download, build, and install the red package.

Actual result:

It seems that compiled rrd library (, .la) isn't visible for the linker. If you installed the rrd tool by hand, verify your installation. You can specify any installation rrd path by configure option (--with-rrd if I remember correctly, you can verify it by configure --help) when you install the extension by phpize - I suppose, that phpize is the recommended installation process for your case, try it.
