Please reply to the Nagios Plugin Development Mailing List
(nagiosplug-devel at lists.sourceforge.net). You may need to subscribe first.

How long have you waited? What OS/distribution are you using? It
happened in the past that some OS bugs caused the configure script to
take insanely long time to execute, though I believe it was on some
other checks.

As last resort you may try:

./configure --without-ping-command --without-ping6-command

But be aware that check_ping won't work (Shouldn't be compiled either
but looks like there's a bug).

You may use check_icmp as a replacement but you will have to set proper
permissions for Nagios to be able use it. check_icmp is like check_ping
but does the network stuff itself instead of calling "ping".

The permissions for check_icmp should looks like this: mode 4750, owned
by "root" with group "nagios".
