I see! So in order to add a new DS you have to create a whole new RRD?
That's a pity. Using the tune on a live RRD file would be way easier for

BTW, even man page of rrd create still points to rrd tune regarding
adding a DS (indirectly).

in Debian there are many RRD libraries in separate packages
( https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=wheezy&keywords=rrd ). They
all have to be upgraded as well, I believe. Plain configure make install
will not address that, I am afraid. I, for example, need to update the
php5-rrd (i.e. /usr/lib/php5/20100525/rrd.so).
