I currently have Nagios 2.12 running on FreeBSD 6.3 i386 and FreeBSD 7.0 amd64 without any problems.

When FreeBSD 7.0 first came out I tried running Nagios on an i386 system. While the main process did not go crazy I started having child processes hang just like that (i.e. unkillable zombie) Rather than mess with it I rolled the box back to FreeBSD 6.3.

Nagios' use of fork and FreeBSD have not had a very cordial relationship.

You may want to try and hit the nagios-users mailing list and/or email the maintainer to see if he might have suggestions.
