My check_disk plug-ins do show a summary of remaining disk space.
In fact they even show performance data (the stuff following the
although this seems to make little sense to me as far as disk
space is concerned.

$ /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_disk -w 10% -c 5% -p /

DISK OK - free space: / 91 MB (45%);| /=110MB;180;190;0;200

Maybe your taciturn output derives from your referencing the
partition instead of the mountpoint?

$ bdf /
Filesystem          kbytes    used   avail %used Mounted on
/dev/vg00/lvol3     204800  111432   92688   55% /

$ /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_disk -w 10% -c 5% -p
DISK OK - free space: / 91 MB (45%);| /=110MB;180;190;0;200

incarnation of volume manager
but no legacy partitions.
So I can't reproduce your result.

Maybe if it helps we could compare our release versions?

$ /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_disk -V     
check_disk (nagios-plugins 1.4) 1.56
