Hi Ulf,

I'm going to trim some of the reply and top-post, for brevity ...

Are you able to get the rrdtool 1.4.1 fully working from source compile?

If so, is there any helpful info you could share RE the packages and/or 
independent sources you had to install due to pre-existing EL4 versions?

Does it even work from a source compile on a stock EL4 + evolution28 box?
