Hi Ton,

I just tested it on a server without tap... The problem seems to be a
simple dependency - you need to build tap before the actual tests...
Although I doubt the way you did it will use GL libraries...

The problem with tap is that although it's using gnulib it's missing
some modules to work on some servers. I was thinking of including it
directly with nagiosplug's build system, i.e. in tap/.

The dependency tree with Tap should look like this:

+----+    +-----+    +-----+    +---------+
| gl |--->| tap |--->| lib |--->| plugins |
+----+    +-----+    +-----+    +---------+
