Check configure options, where you can define the ps command. By  
default, configure will run some ps commands to see which ones match  
various output to get a good choice. Otherwise you can override with  

If you want to help us fix this, we'll need your OS (I'm guessing  
*BSD?), your version of the plugins and your proposed ps command with  
a head -5 of the output.
