Since this issue is already posted, I thought I'd add a couple more
incorrect path elements.  I would imagine that if the paths haven't
been thoroughly checked that many if not most of the paths in included
scripts and plugins may be wrong.  Below, I prepend things with a line
number.  I could supply patches, but this is probably just as easy:

    15: printfcmd="/bin/printf"  <-- Should be /usr/bin/printf
    17: CommandFile="/usr/local/nagios/var/rw/nagios.cmd"
        <-- Should be /var/lib/nagios3/rw/nagios.cmd

The same holds true for

This is only marginally related to this issue with paths, but I figure
I'd just mention it here for the sake of brevity.  In the
enable_notifications script above there is something like:

23: `printfcmd "[%i] <snip>

It's missing a $ in front of the variable name, and should be:

23: `$printcmd "[%i] <snip>
