	Well it's put as "apache | apache-ssl | httpd" which should
allow any web server package to be used however the packaging at this
time only knows how to try and configure itself to run on apache or

	By changing debian/control so that it "Suggests" the web server
rather than depends on it you could setup a distributed monitoring
system with Nagios as listed on the Nagios documentation[1]. Also it
made more sense to change the "Depends" to "nagios-plugins |
netsaint-plugins (>=" rather than as a "Suggests" or
"Recommends" as Nagios doesn't make much sense without them...
