That is not a problem.

It looks like the problem is the +monarch varaint of nagios which  
cannot ever work (it adds a dependency on the monarch port which  
already depends on nagios). Cycles aren't allowed in the dependency  
graph, so this breaks MacPorts.

As a workaround for you, I think you will get what you want by just  
doing `port install monarch`

(I don't use nagios or monarch, so I'm not sure if that will actually  
do what you want, though).
