looks good to me.  i'll let you know if i see anything wierd the
next time i build a package, but in the meantime it does seem to
work the right way with fakeroot.

i see the debian package is using the options, though i can't recall
it actually doing anything important... especially since the nagios
user usually doesn't exist when the package is built and there are no
configuration files that reference the given user.  so no, i don't think
removing the option should break anything.
