Late Happy Birthday, #405040
Sometimes, it is nearly as frustrating to use Debian than it is to use commercial software. For example, when one sees a simple bug completely unreacted on for more than one year. #405040 has passed its first anniversary since it was reported and touched for the last time. Visible reaction of the package maintainer: Nil.
It's a small thing, but an annoying one. And I still consider it unacceptable to let bugs rot for a year without the slightest trace of action.

http://asteria.debian.or.at/~weasel/nagios-check-libs should do what you need. It does not depend on nagios.
Providing a patch may help if this bug is really important for you, package maintainers seem to work faster when they only need to apply patches instead of writing them.

Looks good, I'll try it in the next days.
How many packages do you maintain, and what does make you think that I do not know how to maintain packages and to treat bug reporters?
fatal on :
No reaction for a year is bad? Try seven years with patch available and no comment from any maintainer.....
IMNSHO Debian really needs a BTS Death Squad that goes through the bts and nmus packages with patches available (yes, even non-rc bugs) and at the same time larts maintainers who prentends to be maintaining stuff when they are really just hogging the package to not let anyone else fix them.
