For ping you need to enable a specific capability. I have nagios 2.0 running fine within a vserver ;)

What I did to get it to work was:
 * Add CAP_NET_RAW to the capabilities of the vserver (in /etc/vservers)
 * start the vserver
 * modify configure to check for a hostname instead of
 * compile nagios
 * configure nagios
 * run nagios :)
