The package nrpe is vulnerable to arbitrary command execution via CVE-2014-2913 and CVE-2013-1362 due to the use of `-enable-command-args` in the `./configure` statement in the PKGBUILD. The CVEs haven't been fixed in a satisfying way upstream. Therefore I would propose we disable the feature completely and stop supporting it.


Please apply the patch for disabling this dangerous feature.
