Yes, it has been and what's more the self same version.  In general
terms that might have been a mistake or because the conditions of
the dependants have changed.  It is because a depend has a flagged
problem that has gone too long unfixed.

That's mistake.  Pruning didn't go deep enough but you are no worse
off than if they are not there.  It just looks stupid.

Don't know other that things need reasons to happen not no reason to
not happen.

Manually and ignore the warnings:

# ARCH=`uname -p`
# wget http://blastwave.berlios.de/csw/unstable/${ARCH}/5.8/nagiosp-1.\
# gunzip nagiosp-1.4.3,REV=2006.05.18-SunOS5.8-${ARCH}-CSW.pkg.gz
# pkgadd -d nagiosp-1.4.3,REV=2006.05.18-SunOS5.8-${ARCH}-CSW.pkg all

That should be safe as the nagiosp package hasn't change for ages, if
you were happy with it before you will be again.
