What can I do?
I have the same issue, it looks like it's not picking up the config file location properly. I have mine set to /etc/nrpe.cfg in the inetd.conf file but the error shows //nrpe.cfg?!?

In my NRPE init script the following start routine exists:

        echo "Starting the NRPE subsystem"
        /usr/local/nagios/libexec/nrpe -c /usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg --daemon
Note after the echo on first line everything else is a single line even if it appears as two when you look at this message.

Are you running nrpe with the -c option to specify the location of the nrpe.cfg file?
