Generally when you build a new version of MRTG, by default it uses 
"/usr/local/" as the prefix directory to install into. Depending upon what web 
server your using, generally your MRTG graphs will reside in either "/var/www" 
or "/home/httpd/" or something alike. (You can tell easily by doing "grep -i 
workdir mrtg.cfg" which will return where your MRTG graphs are out-putted to).

So I'm pretty sure your current graphs will be safe if you install a new 
version of MRTG. I've upgraded 3 times and never lost any information.
