Good Morning!
I am attempting to install memcached 1.2.2 on a Sun V240 running Solaris 10
11/06.   I am receiving an error message that indicates libevent is not
installed.  However, I have already installed libevent 1.3b and I specified
the location of the library files. 
# find / -name '*libevent*'
# pwd
# ./configure --with-libevent=/usr/local/lib
