I think it is because you don't have a PRINT or GPRINT statement.

Try this and see if it works:

sprintf(argstr, "temp.png --start %lu --end %lu"
    "DEF:mytemp=gopher.rrd:temp:MAX "
    "GPRINT:min:MAX:Max Temperature %%8.3lf %%s",
    seconds1, seconds2);

Note that the double percent signs are for sprintf not RRD.  I would
suggest that you get things to work w/ RRDTOOL from the command line
first.  Then, write the C code.
