read again.

it works between atoms unless you use one of the other options.

have you tried it out at all?

 From g_rdf -h:
The option -rdf sets the type of rdf to be computed. Default is for 
atoms or particles, but one can also select center of mass or geometry 
of molecules or residues. In all cases only the atoms in the index 
groups are taken into account. For molecules and/or the center of mass 
option a run input file is required. Other weighting than COM or COG can 
currently only be achieved by providing a run input file with different 
masses. Option -com also works in conjunction with -rdf.
