[mrtg] Rateup under OBSD3.3/sparc64 problems

Hello there!

I'm writing to this list, because intensive searching in google and
mailing-lists gave me no answer to my problem.

I'm using mrtg under OpenBSD3.3/sparc64 (Netra X1 Box) and rateup won't
work as it should (looks like). I used the same config-file under an
other box without problems.

I got this problem under the mrtg-version of the current ports-tree
(2.9.12a) and the self-compiled actual version (2.9.29). The compiler:

# gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/sparc64-unknown-openbsd3.3/2.95.3/specs
gcc version 2.95.3 20010125 (prerelease, propolice)

The problem:

If I start mrtg, I'll get the following error-msgs:

bash-2.05b# mrtg /etc/mrtg.cfg
Rateup ERROR: /usr/local/bin/rateup found's log file
was corrupt
          or not in sorted order:

file for was invalid as well
2003-06-16 11:27:38 -- WARNING: rateup died from Signal 0
 with Exit Value 1 when doing router ''
 Signal was 0, Returncode was 1

It's not a permission-problem, I'm starting the whole thing under root -
file/dir-permissions are okay. I read somewhere about a similar problem,
but there was no answer available anywhere.

Here the mrtg.cfg (without comments):

WorkDir: /var/www/htdocs/tempdir

It's a bug in mrtg openbsd/sparc64 or does anybody have an idea, how I
may fix this problem? 

Thank you + Greetings,
