Understood and agreed. gcc-4.0.1 complains bitterly about it too, of
course. I doubt it offers anything like the interface offered (and
therefore probably expected) by more modern implementations, and is also
unlikely to work correctly on the variety of architectures being offered

I think that's the most viable option, yes. iputils was mentioned by Ag
Hatzim, and is what my host (ubuntu) uses. Unfortunately, the very
first thing I see in the Makefile (and what caused my initial
compilation attempt to fail) is:
Ouch! It wants /usr/src/linux!
Jim, do you know of any issues with inetutils' `ping' on your
multi-arch/cross-lfs builds? I think I remember you mentioning a BUS
ERROR you were getting on a Sparc box. Did you get that sorted?
