nsca used to depend on nagios-plugins, which is a rather dependency
heavy package.  to close a number of bugs (and to make nagios-related
packages a little more useful) i split off the nagios-plugins
packages into two packages, one of which only having minimal

each plugin (check_foo) has a conffile like you see below:

if you feel there is a genuine problem, then i'd be happy to see it,

be done to resolve the problem.
