I've seen a question or two about running rrdtool and/or mrtg on Fedora.

In stead of waiting, I just tried.  So far, so good.

Fresh install of Fedora workstation (default choices, no patches)
1) download mrtg-2.10.11.tar.gz into /usr/src
2) tar xzf mrtg-2.10.11.tar.gz
3) cd mrtg-2.10.11
4) sh configure
5) make
6) make install
7) configure and start snmp
   ___WARNING___  This is NOT the snmpd configuration howto.
   ___WARNING___  The stuff I edited probably is not secure.
   ___WARNING___  I don't care, since this machine cannot be
                  compromised.  Your machine might.
   vi /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
   chkconfig snmpd on
   service snmpd start
8) create config file
   /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/cfgmaker \
      --global "Workdir: /tmp" \
      --show-op-down \
      --output=/tmp/mrtg.cfg \
9) edit crontab
   crontab -e
   0/5 * * * * /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/mrtg /tmp/mrtg.cfg
10) create index page
    /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/indexmaker --output=/tmp/mrtg.html \
10) view page using mozilla.  Apache is not installed so
    use "file:///tmp/mrtg.html"
