What would it take to compile a new version of PING?  I can download
all the NetBSD sources for version 2.1, but a simple "make" in
/usr/src/sbin/ping dooesn't get me very far.  Can I twist someone's
arm to supply me with a trusted binary?

Or am I missing only something tiny?  Keep in mind that I'll need to
do this (download sources, make appropriate preparations, compile ping
and install) on three production NetBSD platforms: 1.6.1, 2.1 and 3.1.
