I'm going to file a stable request for our architectures teams somewhen
next week probably. I'll take a look at that guide and also reference it
in the postinstall-note

pointers are pnp4nagios and nagvis - integrating pnp4nagios is quite
simple, i'll send in a diff this weekend. As for nagvis i'm working on
an ebuild right now, also integration this is a bit more complicated,
that's something for an 1.1 version of this guide.

Point me to an overlay and i'll take a look at it. It's my motivation to
make the Nagios integration into Gentoo as best as possible. With
integrating lots of useful plugins we make a huge difference to other
distributions which in most cases only include the nagios-plugins
package and that's it.
