Hi Andreas,
its me again ;)

Now running on git HEAD dc2caf36

i use customized path to object_cache_file and log_file inside of nagios.cfg

OMD[ng4]:~$ grep objects.cache tmp/nagios/nagios.cfg 

OMD[ng4]:~$ grep nagios.log tmp/nagios/nagios.cfg 

But nagios uses the default locations out of include/locations.h

OMD[ng4]:~$ ./bin/nagios  /omd/sites/ng4/tmp/nagios/nagios.cfg

Also /usr/local/nagios/var/objects.cache is created but never updated
