Here is what I just used on my 9 box and it showed the ip addresses:
/usr/bin/cfgmaker --global 'WorkDir: /var/www/html/mrtg/data' \
--global 'Options[_]: growright,bits' --ifref=eth foo_pub at foo.foobar.com

I do not remember why I used that command line any more but it was at the
top of my config file and ir does what I needed so I tried it on my
9 box it appears to be ok.
