This is not related specifically to mrtg, but what platform are you
If a *nix variant, try to do a "find / -name 'snmpget' ."  It sounds
like your 
snmp binaries aren't in a location in your path.  If on Windows, I
can't be 
of much help.

Feel free to use the perl module to do snmpgets in a perl script.  They

work fine too.
