[Nagiosplug-help] check_procs: System call sent warnings to stderr

This looks very much like my error.  The second line is garbage, do not 
use.  Fix the problem by editing config.h and changing this line:

#define PS_COMMAND "/bin/ps -axwo 'stat uid ppid vsz rss pcpu comm args'"


#define PS_COMMAND "/bin/ps axwo 'stat uid ppid vsz rss pcpu comm args'"

Then make ; make install

It may of course be something else entirely, but it looks like it may be 
this error.
