Unfortunately, although I was able to compile this package on wheezy,  
I wasn't able to install it:

  hobbit-plugins depends on xymon-client (>= 4.3.17-2~); however:
   Version of xymon-client on system is 4.3.0~beta2.dfsg-9.1+deb7u1.

I tried to compile xymon-4.3.17 as well, but then that one depends on  
further packages that I eventually could not compile, such as  
apache2_2.4.10 (which contains apache2-dev, which provides  
dh-apache2). Oh, well.

So, it was worth a try, but I don't have many wheezy systems left and  
they will be replaced soon enough anyway.
And, more importantly, now that I know how to whitelist the mysqld and  
qemu-system-x86_64 processes for the libs test, all of my systems will  
soon be green!

Thanks again for your help!
