[mrtg] Does anyone know how to make cfgmaker use the Port Name as the description?

I'm running 6509s with CAT OS and need MRTG to use the port name as  
the description since the description itself comes up blank for  
individual ports. if I put --desc=catname in the config maker there  
is the following: ERROR: Invalid value for --ifdesc: 'catname'

I know that mrtg pulls the info from snmp as it shows up in the table:

    <TR><TD>System:</TD>     <TD>routername</TD></TR>
    <TR><TD>Maintainer:</TD> <TD>Me</TD></TR>
    <TR><TD>Description:</TD><TD>  </TD></TR>
    <TR><TD>ifType:</TD>     <TD>ethernetCsmacd (6)</TD></TR>
    <TR><TD>ifName:</TD>     <TD>4/4</TD></TR>
    <TR><TD>Port Name:</TD>  <TD>router21</TD></TR>
    <TR><TD>Max Speed:</TD>  <TD>1000.0 Mbits/s</TD></TR>

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
