did the configure-script actually find the RRDTool library and header
files? The summary at the end of the script should tell you.

Maybe. If you have linked against `librrd', all you need to do is set
the `Mode' to `Local'. If you didn't link against `librrd' (because the
configure-script couldn't find the header files and/or the library) you
will need to install them and re-compile.

If the files are human-readable, e. g. by using `less', they're
`CSV'-files and the `Mode' is (possibly implicitely) set to `Log'.
