the configuration on change.

Changes 2.17.0, 2010-12-15
Steve Shipway:
* added rrdcached support

  - new keyword:  RRDCached: which overrides anything set in the
    RRDCACHED_ADDRESS environment variable and sets MRTG to work in
    RRDCached mode.  This verifies that you're using a unix-domain
    socket and the socket is writable.

  - Check for environment variable RRDCACHED_ADDRESS and use this
    if no explicit address was set in the cfg file, making the same
    config validity checks.

  - Make warning if using rrdcached to the effect that the threshold
    checks will no longer work.

  - If in rrdcached-mode, and using RRDTool 1.4, then force use of
    update rather than updatev (as rrdcached does not yet support
    updatev) and consequently bypass the threshold checks.

  - Changes to validity check error messages  to also report the
    file containing the error (as well as the line).

* Added support for glob patterns in include

* Make daemon reload cfg automatically when it changes

John Belshaw:

* added support for Arista to cfgmaker

Duncan J. Ferguson

* fix cfgmaker to work in mixed v1/2/3 snmp environment

Stuart Henderson

* do not stringify arguments to conversion function let eval take
  care of this

* untaint inlast and outlast to make  perl taint mode happy

* teach cfgmaker about openbsd
