Installing Xymon Client

I was wondering if anyone has had any issues with installing the new xymon client. Recently, I installed the client on a server that was running the old hobbit client just fine.  Once I installed the xymon  client and I ran the start command, I received the following:

su - xymon -c "/xymon/xymon-4.3.0-beta2/client/ start"
Cannot write to the /xymon/xymon-4.3.0-beta2/client/logs directory

So I tried to run the ./configure.client but during the setup it said that the following was missing:
Checking for the PCRE libraries
Checking for PCRE ...
PCRE include- or library-files not found. These are REQUIRED for hobbitd
PCRE can be found at
If you have PCRE installed, use the "--pcreinclude DIR" and "--pcrelib DIR"
options to configure to specify where they are.

I don't remembering having to do all this to just get the hobbit client running. What am I missing?
