Ok, on your advice I did start over and I have mrtg working now!

My only problem is scheduling multiple mrtg.cfg files using cron

Yes, someone gave me some useful information.  First off, un-do everything
you've done - delete/uninstall mrtg and all the libraries. 
It will be easier for me to forward the responses I got that helped me.  I'm
not at work where my ubuntu machine lives, so I can't give you any details
on what I did.  I can say that I had more trouble running the mrtg configure
program even after I got it installed.  In fact, it's still not running.  I
think my current problem has to do with the fact that my web site is on a
Windows Server 2003 machine, and I'm having problems getting the webroot
folder opened up to where Ubuntu can write to it. 
The the messages I'm going to forward got mrtg running....

I'm having this exact same issue same versions of ubuntu and mrtg.  Has
anyone been able to fix this?

        Trying to do a new install of MRTG 2.16.2 on Ubuntu 9.04; following
the instructions in /doc/mrtg-unix-guide.txt. 
        Ubuntu doesn't seem to come with gd, so I downloaded gd-2.0.35,
zlib-1.2.3, and libpng-1.2.35. 
        Not an expert but, it looked to me like all the required libraries
installed correctly.  When I try: 
        ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mrtg-2 --with-gd=/usr/local/src/gd
--with-z=/usr/local/src/zlib --with-png=/usr/local/src/libpng 
        things run to here... 
        checking gd.h usability... yes 
        checking gd.h presence... yes 
        checking for gd.h... yes 
        ** Ooops, one of many bad things happened: 
           a)  You don't have the GD library installed. 
        I do, and I have the correct path in the --with switches. 
           b)  You have the GD library installed, but not the gd.h header
        Clearly, I do - it's the last line before the fail. 
           c)  You have the library and the header file installed, but ...
didn't configure it with --disable-shared. 
        Yes, I did, and there were no *.so.* or *.so files anywhere I can
           d)  You have gd library installed and also it's headers, but you
are missing libpng (and headers) or freetype (and headers) 
        Both incorrect.  libpng (and headers) installed, gd compiled without
        Consider following the instructions in doc/mrtg-unix-guide.txt 
         Not to seem rude but, that's how I got here! 
        Does anyone have any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong and,
more importantly, what to do get back on track?
