The nagios-plugins-setuid package from rpmforge does not have a corresponding package in Ubuntu, though Ubuntu has a number of nagios-plugins-* packages

root@solarcesmemedepot:~# apt-cache search nagios-plugin
nagios-plugins - Plugins for nagios compatible monitoring systems (metapackage)
nagios-plugins-basic - Plugins for nagios compatible monitoring systems
nagios-plugins-standard - Plugins for nagios compatible monitoring systems
check-mk-agent - general purpose nagios-plugin for retrieving data
check-mk-agent-logwatch - general purpose nagios-plugin for retrieving data
check-mk-config-icinga - general purpose nagios-plugin for retrieving data
check-mk-config-nagios3 - general purpose nagios-plugin for retrieving data
check-mk-doc - general purpose nagios-plugin for retrieving data (documentation)
check-mk-livestatus - general purpose nagios-plugin for retrieving data
check-mk-multisite - general purpose nagios-plugin for retrieving data
check-mk-server - general purpose nagios-plugin for retrieving data
libnagios-plugin-perl - family of perl modules to streamline writing Nagios
nagios-plugin-check-multi - run nagios checks as a group
nagios-plugins-extra - Plugins for the nagios network monitoring and manegement system.

Per IRC with :jabba, I made nagios-plugins-setuid RHEL only for now, and opening this bug for Infra to work out the right Ubuntu package

On 6Server-x86_64 the nagios-plugins-setuid-1.4.16-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm package only contains check_dhcp and check_icmp. On Ubuntu these checks are included in the nagios-plugins package. However, they're not setuid root on Ubuntu. The checks should be invoked via sudo instead.
