Probably your best way around this is to make a script that you call 
instead of 'mrtg MASTER.cfg' that builds the MASTER.cfg file for you and 
then calls MRTG with it.

I don't know shell/DOS batch without a white book with an animal on the 
front next to me but it would be something like:

echo to /apps/mrtg/MASTER.conf until EOF
# This is the Master.conf file
# Any options here...routers2cgi ignores etc.

For blah in /apps/mrtg/*.cfg
	echo to MASTER.conf "Include: $blah"

call /apps/mrtg /apps/mrtg/MASTER.conf

You'd have to have the master file as a different extension to the 
.cfg's to stop it adding it into itself but that's the sort of thing.
