[Nagiosplug-devel] Packaging issues

I've also just noticed that if make install is run for a non-root  
user, the setuid plugins are still installed, but without setuid.  
I've amended plugins-root/Makefile.am so that the plugins will only  
install if make install is run as root. A warning is displayed  
otherwise. I think this will still work if you are using fakeroot -  
please let me know if it doesn't.

Also, the --nagios-user=nagios configure option is not being  
respected, so plugins are never installed with the configure nagios  
user or group setting. Is this necessary to fix? My feeling is that  
this is a packaging/implementation issue. Is everyone happy for me to  
deprecate these configure options?
