What is the output from check_procs -v -v -v ?

Also, what is the ps command in config.h? If this ps command is not the best
one to run for FreeBSD, can you suggest an alternative?

I've got a problem with the check_procs plugin on systems with FreeBSD 5.2.1
and 5.3:

$ /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_procs
OK - 10 processes running

There are much more processes running than 10 running - the other problem

$ ps auxw | grep [c]ron
root     419  0.0  0.3  1344  776  ??  Ss   23Jul04   1:38.28 /usr/sbin/cron
$ /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_procs -w 1: -C cron
WARNING - 0 processes running with command name cron

check_procs from nagios-plugins v1.3.1 and 1.4.0-alpha3 return the same
results for me.
