Yes: know your system (or change it). Different Unices have different
libraries. On many of them, all which is needed by echoping is in the C
library, automatically used. For some systems, echoping's Makefile
contains hints about the possible libraries to use. Since I cannot know
every system, I can be wrong for some. I would start with:

LDFLAGS = -o echoping -lsocket

or maybe:

LDFLAGS = -o echoping -lsocket -lnsl

Never compile an unknown program as root...

You instructed echoping to link with library "inet" but it doesn't exist
on your system (again: this is your system, not mine, read its
documentation and see what library to use).
