Nagios is a network monitoring application. NRPE is a daemon to be installed on a host to be monitored.
The following patches are enabling nagios NRPE to be run from a prefixed portage.
I also ported the init.d scripts, since I'm still intending to fix bug 196294. ;)
The configure script of Nagios NRPE is looking for .so files. Though I tend to believe the correct approach would be to rewrite the linking detection checks in configure.in, it's too big a change for me to attempt and since I'm not a regular follower of Nagios developer mailinglists, I would miss any issues I'd created. So my patch simply adds a check for .dylib as well.
Also I found in the ebuilds the following parameters to econf:
I removed both instead of rewriting --prefix.

Apologies, I stopped using Nagios and lost access to existing deployments.
Reopen, when new patches are available.
