healthd service as it is right now in the package has two dependencies if some want to use it as it is.

I thinks is a good idea to add them as optional dependencies:

optdepends=('rrdtool: for logging with sensord',
'beep: for healthd service'
'smtp-forwarder: to send mail') "recommends" to install beep but I think this would be a better place/solution.

Additional info:
* package version: 3.6.0-2
* config and/or log files etc.
healthd[210740]: which: no beep in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin)
mail: Cannot start /usr/sbin/sendmail: executable not found (adjust *mta* variable)

Steps to reproduce:
systemctl start healthd.service

This task depends upon

I'll add to this that "" is VERY old.
So, along with suggesting "beep" and something like "postfix" as optional dependencies, I would say that the
echo "$message" | mail -s \
"mail" be changed to "sendmail", and
"Sensors ALARM detected at host: $( hostname )" \
"hostname" be changed to "hostnamectl --static"

Having 'rrdtool' as an optional dependency contradicts the recommended setup as per Wiki:

The end of Setup section reads:

**Note: A systemd service is automatically enabled if users answer YES when asked about generating /etc/conf.d/lm_sensors. Answering YES also automatically starts the service.**

However, sensord.service fails to start when rrdtool is not installed.
