MRTG on FreeBSD 5.1 does not install no matter what dependency I use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi anyone I need help im trying to install MRTG-2.29.5 on FreeBSD 5.1 and I get frozen at the gd check. I tried from the ports but i got timed out because my internet connection is slow. It suggested I input mrtg-2.29.5.tar.gz manually to /usr/ports/distfiles which I did but still froze at gd check. I have already configured and made zlib-1.1.4, libpng-1.0.15 and gd-2.0.11 but still stops with the gd check even when i use the '--with-gd=/usr/xx/xx/x'. It also says its missing the gd.h header (which is there) and the gdfonts and gdimage. PLease help!!!!!!!!!

Hey Dimante thanks but check the error im getting when i type pkg_add -r mrtg -
Error: FTP Unable to get Operation timed out
pkg_add: unable to fetch '' by URL

my connection is too slow i think. is there a way i can do it manually without getting from ftp or anything?
KevoZamAuthor Commented:
Oh, Dimante this is where it freezes when i do a make or a configure: -

checking for gdImageGif in -lgd... no
checking for gdImagePng in -lgd... no
checking for gdImagePng_jpg in -lgd... no
checking for gdImagePng_jpg_ft in -lgd... no
checking for gdImageGd in -lgd... no
checking gd.h usability... no
checking gd.h presence... no
checking for gd.h... no

** The GD library is required for rateup to compile.
   Get it from, compile it and
   use either --with-gd-lib=DIR and --with-gd-inc=DIR to specify
   its location. You might also have to use --with-z-inc, --with-z-lib
   and --with-png-inc, --with-png-lib for gd versions 1.6 and higher.
   Check config.log for more information on the problem. If your system
   has libgd installed, you probably mis the gd.h header file.

   Consider following the instructions in doc/unix-guide.txt
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
      Please report the problem to [maintainer] and attach
      the "/usr/ports/net/mrtg/work/mrtg-2.9.25/config.log" including the
      output of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good
      idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system
      (e.g. an `ls /var/db/pkg`).
