[rrd-users] RRD issue "can't parse argument"

I am using rrd 1.0.49 on Solaris machine. I upgraded my Solais 9 machine to
Solaris 10 through OS upgrade option.
After the upgrade rrdtool is not creating any graphs. It returns "can't
parse argument"

I am using:
rrdtool create test.rrd --step=60 DS:MM7AM_1_1:GAUGE:120:U:U
RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:89281 RRA:MAX:0.5:89281:1
And I am receiving:
ERROR: can't parse argument '--step=60'

After the Solaris upgrade, I re-installed the rrd 1.0.49 package. I also
tried by compiling rrdtool on my machine and using that. But everytime I
received the same output.

If I create rrd database without giving "--step=60", I am able to generate
the database. Then I try to create graphs using following command:
rrdtool graph speed.gif --start 920804400 --end 920808000
DEF:myspeed=test.rrd:speed:AVERAGE LINE2:myspeed#FF0000

And I get an error:
ERROR: can't parse '--start'

So I guess there is a problem in parsing parameters starting with "--"
