Hi Ron,

Do an uninstall, forced if necessary, and then clean.

sudo port -f uninstall nagios-plugins
sudo port clean --all nagios-plugins

Then do a selfupdate, and then reinstall.  Either you are not using the
most recent port, or when I removed the platform statements in the latest
nagios-plugins update that are now unnecessary, it has confused the
upgrade routine.
