|    I've read the threads about using "gmake" instead of "make" on the 
| plugins, but neither seems to work in my case.  I am using an OpenBSD 
| 3.1 system with gmake from the ports installation.  After 
| "./configure --with-prefix=/home/nagios" this is what I get:
| whipped# /usr/local/bin/gmake
| cd . &&
| /bin/sh: syntax error: unexpected EOF
| gmake: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 1

I suspect you might find this helpful - cheers!

    | (ardennes!/opt/nagios/nagiosplug-1.3-beta1) [root-ttyp1]
    | # gmake
    | cd . && 
    | /bin/sh: syntax error: unexpected EOF
    | gmake: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 1

    I think there's a problem in the dates on some of the automake-ish
    files in the 1.3-beta1 distribution (which I reported to the
    nagiosplug-devel list earlier today).

    The "cd . &&" command is trying to run automake or aclocal, which
    you likely don't have on your system.

    Try this, which worked for me on a couple of machines:

	gunzip < nagiosplug-1.3-beta1.tar.gz | tar xf -
	cd nagiosplug-1.3-beta1
	touch aclocal.m4; sleep 1
	touch Makefile.in; sleep 1
	touch configure; sleep 1

    Doing the "touch" commands avoids having make want to run automake
    and friends.
