Is fping an optional dependency?

I haven't spent much time on this, but it looks like fping is a hard dependency.

tek has been neglecting a bunch of ports, like this one, personally i am leaning towards deleting sntop from contrib and let a user repo pick it up

I think that's a reasonable solution.

Will leave it be as is for a day or a couple, then delete it if nobody else chimes in on the topic.

BTW: thanks for reporting!
