Source: nagios-nrpe
Version: 3.0.1-3
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

With the current version, it is impossible to build nagios-nrpe on Debian Stretch using openssl 1.1.x. 
This applies to both the Debian source package nagios-nrpe and the upstream source code.
The problem was also reported on https://github.com/NagiosEnterprises/nrpe/issues/93. 
Currently the workaround is to add "--with-need-dh=no" to the configure options. 
In order to support this new configure options, the source package needs to be updated from upstream (3.1.1)
Please update nagios-nrpe source to 3.1.1 and add the configure workaround, too. 

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation? -> Trying to rebuild the Debian source package fails during "make all" due to incompatibility with openssl 1.1.x.
   * What was the outcome of this action? -> Build failed, unable to compile (see https://github.com/NagiosEnterprises/nrpe/issues/93)
   * What outcome did you expect instead? -> Able to build/compile the package.
