Support for check_procs' etime (elapsed time) support is dysfunctional
since the ps command is hardcoded (specified as an argument to
./configure), and doesn't include "etime".
You might either just add etime to the list of fields in debian/rules
./configure options (if that's supported on all Debian's systems), or
remove the configure option from debian/rules, since configure itself
causes the ps command to output the etime field when it detects that
the system supports it). Perhaps add a versioned dependency against
See also #296003 where ps syntax was hardcoded.
