I don't know any user with a monitoring system that tracks testing. Nagios
users normally use stable or backports, so they don't see the problem.

(Just from my experience as a consultant for nagios/monitoring systems).

Indeed, its just a bugfix release. imho ndoutils are a nightmare, but one
without alternatives.

You can't. You can trust on our experience, but thats up to you.

I don't see any option to fix that bug soon. I removed the build-dep yesterday,
the resulting package builds on kfreebsd, but anyhow the resulting cgis just
segfault (I'm sure is has nothing to do with the ping thingy). So I think we
should just remove nagios3 and ndoutils from kfreebsd until one of the
kfreebsd porters fixes the problem. 

What do you think?
