  [NEW PORT] net/fping+ipv6: Quickly ping N hosts w/o flooding the
  network - IPv6 version
          This is an IPv6 only version of fping. The fping with IPv6 patch cannot handle
          IPv4 ping, therefore I think it is better to have two distinct port:
          fping - IPv4 only
          fping+ipv6 - IPv6 only
          Maintainer of fping also copied. He can maintain both port if he agrees.
          A tool to quickly ping N number of hosts to determine their reachability
          without flooding the network.
          fping is different from ping in that you can specify any number of
          hosts on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists
          of hosts to ping. Instead of trying one host until it timeouts or
          replies, fping will send out a ping packet and move on to the next
          host in a round-robin fashion. If a host replies, it is noted and
          removed from the list of hosts to check. If a host does not respond
          within a certain time limit and/or retry limit it will be considered
          Unlike ping, fping is meant to be used in scripts and its
          output is easy to parse.
          This is an IPv6 only version.
