Summary: configure options to skip program autodetection

Initial Comment:
hi 
 
this patch adds commandline arguments to specify 
location of programs to be used, so the programs 
are not needed to exist at compile time in system, 
but plugins are usable. 
 
http://cvs.pld-linux.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/SOURCES/nagios-plugins-configure.patch  
 
please be so kind and apply in your cvs. 
 
note: the ps program related patch chunk 
creates .rej with current snapshot 
(200510290447), but if you apply the rest, i'm 
happy to make that portion compatible with current 
cvs code.

hi elan,

this would be a wonderful feature to have.  as i'm also
maintaining the debian distribution's package, i'm very much
in the same situation as you.  the previous maintainer
issued build-dependencies on these packages, which was not
only an
ugly hack but also problematic, as some of the dependencies
tried to install daemons on the debian build-hosts :)

my current approach was to patch common.h to include a
"debian.h" that had everything hardcoded, which isn't the
most "graceful" way

anyway, if you could supply a version that works against the
current configure.in in cvs HEAD, i'd be more than willing
to include it.  also, could you comment on the first two
hunks in the patch?  not sure what the first one does and
the second looks like it would have problems on non-linux hosts.

thanks,
        sean
