What I meant was: I often have multiple versions of RRDtool installed.  Are 
you sure that the rrdcgi program you're invoking is the right one?

If you're using the stable 1.0.42 version of rrdtool, you don't have this 
feature.  If you want it, you can either use the development version, which 
does have it and lots more, but sometimes doesn't even compile, or I could 
send you the patch.  Since there don't seem to be many changes in rrdcgi, 
and since it does work against 1.0.40, I'd expect it to work against 1.0.42.

Where did you hear about this feature if you're not using the development
