Hi nagiosplug-help,

I am trying to install nagios-plugins.1.4.12 on my server which has got a 
bash shell configured on the OS.

After Successful Unzip of files i goto the nagios-plugins.1.4.12 directory 
and run the command
        " ./configure -disable-ssl -enable-command-args 
--enable-redhatpthread-workaround "

I get the following output:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... build-aux/install-sh -c
checking whether build environment is sane... sleep: Wrong number of 
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... no
checking for nawk... no

checking host system type... i786-stratus-vos
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no

See `config.log' for more details.
sort: A required field is missing. Error in 'sort_path_names'.

I am attaching the config.log file with this email

This will help you analyze the scenario.

The paths mentioned in the above file have got the gcc and cc and c 

Please Let me know what can be done.
