Better to use a common workdir with the Directory[] attribute on each

When using rrdtool, it's often better to use LogDir/HTMLDIr/Imagedir
instead of workdir.

Line 42 in the version I have has this line:

# EDIT THIS to reflect all your MRTG config files
BEGIN { @config_files = qw(/var/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg); }

you can refer to just a single .cfg file if you have a "master" config
with Include: statements, one per device.
