That would be nice, but I'm not sure how feasible it would be.
Even among Linux distros, I doubt you can count on a common
"default install of perl". The problem isn't diminished by
the variety of other environments where MRTG can run. The
"idea to update MRTG" might not lead to the solution you seem
to be looking for.
In your specific circumstances, you have the options of installing
MRTG from either (a) an RPM or (b) an original release (available
at http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/). In the former case, if conflicting
(instances of) packages aren't being identified, you may be able to
persuade the maintainer of the RPM to consider this a bug and add it
to the list of things to be done. In the latter, it's falls to you
to identify any conflicts and to specify parameters at installation
time which steer the process appropriately. TANSTAAFL.
