[mrtg] Problem running mrtg from crontab

I am running mrtg 2.9.4 on a solaris 2.6 os. I am trying to run mrtg as
a cronjob, but none of the graphs or the .log file in the workdir
update, but the .html and the .ok file do update.  When I run mrtg from
the command line, everything updates fine.

My crontab entry looks like:
0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * *
/usr/local/mrtg-2.9.4/bin/mrtg  /usr/local/mrtg-2.9.4/bin/mrtg.cfg

I have tried running mrtg in a shell script with the above path, but the
results are the same.

Any suggestions?
