Just expect it to be run on linux; perhaps bsd. The last time I played 
with it, there were too many issues with getting it to run on Solaris 10 
to bother. Don't get me wrong. When I installed nagios 3.1.2 yesterday, 
I had to make it understand that -lsocket was needed and copy snprintf.o 
from ./base to ./common where it was supposed to be compiled. Zenoss 
just wasn't an easy tweak. It's been awhile, but I suspect their was very linux centric and would have required a rewrite.
