I've got autoconf working more or less with nocol, but it's lead me into 
reworking a lot of the x-platform portability stuff so that it's test-driven 
rather than being driven by checking the OS.

Anyway, some of the worst tangle of conditional checking involves ping and
multiping.  Rather than figuring out how to write a configure time test to see 
what arguments ping takes, I'm thinking about just always using multiping.

Is there a good reason not to do this?

Also, I'm not up to this myself, but it seems that it might not be a terrible 
idea to steal code from multiping and put it directly in ippingmon to save 
spawning a separate process.
