In any case, if noone else replies, you can use the "--x-grid" option
to change the format.  I don't know mrtg-rrd so you have to look at
that code to see if it already creates such a line.  If not, it is
probably something like "--x-grid" "DAY:1:WEEK:1:WEEK:1:604800:Week %V"

   "DAY:1:WEEK:1:WEEK:1:604800:Week %V"
                               ^^^^^^^ print "Week xx"
                        ^^^^^          in the middle of 604800 seconds ...
                 ^^^^^^                ... every week
          ^^^^^^                       major grid line every week
    ^^^^^                              minor grid line every day

Check the archives.  IIRC there was a patch to do so.  Stock RRDtool
doesn't support it.
