I'm pretty sure that he's getting ready to ship 3.0 release w/ broken
threading on FreeBSD. 

I haven't had time to test it on NetBSD yet, but since it can be fixed
by switching up which threading engine you link against on the Free*
side of *BSD, its likely a long-term fix in Ports instead of polluting
the code with #IFDEF's for FreeBSD-specific POSIX thread nits (it's a
hard-sell since the same code works fine on Solaris and Linux w/o issue)

What we need is:

1) Nightly builds of Nagios against various releng trees
2) Serious BSD involvement in the project to look at the threading 
   code (beyond me)
3) Bug tracking on the Nagios side

I recently proposed #1 and #2 on nagios-user@, but I got a lot of
push-back from Andreas.  Any type of professional project management
improvements that quote "Aren't fun" are heavily frowned upon.
