The best way to make 14all work with rrdcached is simply to set the environment variable RRDCACHED_ADDRESS within your web server so that it is set when the CGI script is called.  Then, you'll access everything via rrdcached.

In your Apache httpd.conf, put 

SetEnv RRDCACHED_ADDRESS unix:/path/to/socket

(or the TCP address instead).  This works with several other RRD frontends.

If using Routers2, then this has internal support for RRDcached.  You can set the option in the routers2.conf.
