Quite so, but the nagiosplug project gets installed on all unixy flavours
in networks where someone's running Nagios. Personally, I've helped
install it on more variants of unix than I even knew existed, and at
least 3 major-versions of each variant. gnulib was not much of an option
there, to be honest.
