You can use the environment variable method to make it work.  Set the environment variable RRDCACHED_ADDRESS to be the location of your socket (either unix:/path/to/socket or hostname:port) and the rrd libraries should use rrdcached automatically.  If you're using Apache then you can use the setenv in the httpd.conf to make sure the env var is set before executing the CGI -- I used this method successfully with Routers2 before adding explicit support into the code.
