Hi Sylvain,

if you make that perlscript so that it is halvway presentable and
documented, I guess others might be interested too ... I will also
be glad to host it in the contrib download area ...

wouldn't it be alright if you installed everything under a common
subdirectory ? because this is what the whole rrdtool install
system is made for ... you can even install cairo and friends in
that tree
