Iain, where is the updated init script. You are installing the old one.

Iain, look into your /etc/httpd/conf.d and look where are these packages
installed. If you want it to be simple, just place the collection.cgi
script into collectd's DATADIR and make appropriate configuration for
web server here.

Of course the CGI package depends on several components:
Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}, perl, rrdtool-perl, webserver

Setting up CGI in a SELinux enforced system is a real pain for the end
user. :)
