yum priorities can not overrule hard coded dependencies.
yum priorities can decide what to prefer if there were multiple choices.
You tried to install a package that explicitly stated
Requires: rrdtool = 1.4.5
If the only rrdtool 1.4.5 is in rpmforge, yum priorities cant help you.
Maybe you could try to update rrdtool first.
$ yum update rrdtool
$ yum install whatever
However, existing rrdtool functionality may break.
