[smokeping-users] Minimum rrdtool for Smokeping 2.2.2?

Ugh! Just got finished installing rrdtool 1.2.23 on my Solaris box. And
reinstalling! And re-installing!

I kept having the same problem with SmokePing - getting the VDEF error
indicating that I was still on 1.0.x. Finally went in to my Perl
directory and found that there were RRDxxx under my (older) Perl
directory which apparently were getting used:

root at netopsdr [/usr/local]
# find . -name RRD*

So I renamed those and then got a major clue to my problem - the .cgi
was unable to find RRDp.pm ...

At that point, following the template in smokeping.cgi.dist, I had
use lib qw(/usr/pack/rrdtool-1.0.33-to/lib/perl);
use lib qw(/home/oetiker/data/projects/AADJ-smokeping/dist/lib);

use lib qw(/export/appl/rrdtool-1.2.23/lib/perl);
use lib qw(/export/appl/smokeping-2.2.3/lib);

However, when I looked back at the rrdtool install log, it had actually
placed the stuff one level deeper:
root at netopsdr [/export/appl/rrdtool-1.2.23/lib/perl/5.8.7]
# ls
./             ../            RRDp.pm        sun4-solaris/

Changing the one line corrected the problem:
use lib qw(/export/appl/rrdtool-1.2.23/lib/perl/5.8.7)

Not sure if this is a difference from 1.0.x to 1.2.x or what, but I
spent a lot of time tracking this down... 
Once I had that, everything seemed OK.
