No, it's not because you have that option included.  It's because of
bug(s) in traceroute.

You don't need that option unless you think that, for some reason,
you're going to be using the VAX-style FP instructions.  You aren't.
(It doesn't save much space, but I conditionalized it because most
people Really don't need it.)
