Thanks for the help, Sam.

Bottom line, I've been able to get RRD working on OS X. Took a while  
though. Getting some libraries using Fink was easy, but I couldn't  
convince configure to find them. But I got past that. Unfortunately,  
there's no binary for RRD available via Fink.

By following the steps literally and working through the diagnostic  
messages *very* carefully, I got it built. Now on to the applications!
