Fresh argus install...graphs not working

I've experienced graphing errors in Argus before and I have been able to
work my way through them but this is one I do not understand.  My current
"config" consist of the sample "Self" config from with the appropriate "graph: yes" per
entry to enable graphing.  When I attempt to load a page which has graphs I
am getting the following both in the graph and in my apache error-log.

picasso: ERROR 'Top:Myself:VSZ' is stubborn and refuses to open: No such
file or directory

Output of argusctl status:
ARGUS/2.0 200 OK
status:   running
version:  3.3
perlver:  5.8.3
osinfo:   SunOS 5.8 sun4m
objects:  5

idle:     97.49% 98.58% 98.63%
monrate:  0.05 0.05 0.05 per second

Relevant portion of ./Configure output:
found GD - including graphing support

I have tested GD and it is able to generate an image through perl.

Any thoughts?
