Last time I checked (v2.9.17) the minimum interval, without the 
patch was five minutes.

A quick peek at the v2.9.18 (6/7/2002) config reference reveals that
this is no longer the case:

"Note, that unless you are using rrdtool you can not set Interval to less 
than 5 minutes. If you are using rrdtool you can set interval down to 1 
Minute. Note though, setting the Interval for an rrdtool/mrtg setup will 
influence the initial creation of the database. If you change the 
interval later, all existing databases will remain at the resolution 
they were initially created with."
