g_rdf in the CVS version has an -xy option, this might do the trick.
Depending on how your system looks like you might want to also define a 
bottom and top z inbetween which the rdf is made, but you'd have to tweak 
to program a bit to enable this. Actually it shouldn't be a bad idea at 
all to include this there.
