We use ubuntu at my workplace, but I'm only familiar with bug
submission for Debian.  So I checked that this applies to the package
in debian's unstable, but forgot to change the version header.

check_http current allows --follow=foo or -f foo, but not -f=foo.
Also the implementation doesn't error when "foo" is an invalid string.
This patch allows -f=foo and errors if "foo" isn't a recognized
"follow" parameter.
