I have a question on compiling Nagios' NRPE on AIX (which I'm assuming
would be similar to FreeBSDl, as I'm trying to use Autotools on ksh).

I'm used to always running "tar -zxfv file.tar.gz", but this time I
had to run (I think) like "tar z" and then "tar xfv" to get it

In that directory, I then ran "./configure" and then "make all", and
I'm hoping someone here might help point me in the right direction.

./configure --prefix=/opt/nagios --enable-command-args --without-ssl
make install

When I do this, I get an error about "Boutell's GD library is required
to compile the statusmap, trends and histogram CGIs.  Get it from, compile
it, and use the --with-gd-lib and --with-gd-inc arguments to specify
the locations of the GD library and include files."

Ok, that's cool.  But am I on the right track about how to install
this on AIX? Once I installed this GD library and "./configure" with
the right parameters, will this work in AIX?

(Sorry if this isn't the best place to ask this question, as I tend to
be spoiled by Linux packages.  If not, I can take it elseware)

It has been a while since I have done this on AIX, but you just need to check the directory structure is going to be correct. Typically I will run configure and check to see what variables are set for the install directories, and possibly set those differently if configure did not find the correct directories or if I need them set differently. Often this may mean moving the install directories to or from the /usr/local area.

You may do well to look for pre-compiled binaries for AIX. Also let me remind you that you could gunzip the .gz file first, then just untar the tarball in two steps, rather than doing it in one step.
