[Pkg-nagios-devel] nsca: installs httpd server

Package: nsca
Version: 2.4-3
Severity: normal


looks like there's something strange with nsca/nagios dependencies
(feel free to reassign this bugreport to nagios, I already CC'ed the
pkg-nagios-devel mailinglist with this bugreport).

nsca depends on nagios-text | nagios-pgsql | nagios-mysql
nagios-text | nagios-pgsql | nagios-mysql depends on nagios-common
nagios-common depends on apache | httpd

This is IMHO broken, I don't want to install a webserver on a system
just to use nsca, which does not require a webserver.

I know, equivs exists, and that's how I workarounded this, but that's
a quite ugly workaround.

Regards, Norbert
