you don't. They are separate packages.
to use mrtg, simply run cfgmaker by pointing it at an SNMP-enabled
device and capturing the output to a file. then run mrtg with that
file and you are collecting data. RTFM on the finer points, but
that's it in a nutshell.
I'd give an example but I no longer use mrtg: I use rrdtool.
If you think you might want rrdtool (which offers a lot more)
checkout cacti (cacti.net) as a front-end/config manager. care and
feeding of rrdtool is much more involved.
that I do have examples for: http://paulbeard.org/cacti/Graphs%20for%
