Package description is currently this:

  blackbox_exporter is a prometheus exporter. The blackbox exporter
  allows blackbox probing of endpoints over HTTP, HTTPS, DNS, TCP and

but currently ICMP probes can't work because binary is not suid.

I'd say either remove ICMP from description or think about changing the Port to
actually allow ICMP probes to work out of the box.

PS: I see we also have in the Ports a "ping_exporter" which might be better in
that regard anyways… but OTOH I'd prefer to use blackbox for that too, for sake
of simplicity and number of running daemons.
