We been successful using RRDTool 1.2 in our Solaris x86 and SPARC system. Lately we have noticed:  http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool-trac/ticket/178 and planned to upgrade to 1.3. 

Couple of comments:

 - there are a lot more libraries required on this version: pango, cairo,
 pixman. These were not needed on 1.2, is this correct ?

 - why so many dependencies ? This makes a bit harder the building process
plus increases the risk that something might not execute correctly. There
are dozens of warnings during build process with or without GNU compiler.

 - I hope rrdtool will stay small and efficient, the way it has been.
