Package: nagios-common
Version: 2:1.3-cvs.20050402-2.sarge.2
Severity: normal

The nagios-common package includes the CGI script 
/usr/lib/cgi-bin/nagios/grouplist.cgi which uses "bc" from the "bc" package. 
The nagios-common package doesn't declare this dependency. 

The script is not active by default. You need to activate this line in

ScriptAlias /nagios/side.html /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nagios/grouplist.cgi

When bc is not installed, the bug shows in the apache log file 

/usr/lib/cgi-bin/nagios/grouplist.cgi: line 1: bc: command not found
