Description:Trying to compile on Centos 5, I've installed net-snmp and net-snmp-devel, but configure still complains that net-snmp is not found or not correctly installed. Checking in the config log file, I found this.

Guess we need to add a check for the "sensors" library found in linux package lm_sensors and lm_sensors_devel

This is a packaging bug on centos.

The net-snmp build tool tells Asterisk that building against this library requires libsensors.  However, the package is not dependent on it.

Feel free to report this upstream ...
