There don't appear to be any ICMP config options, just a
compile-time switch, is this correct? If I turn the compile-time
switch on, what all happens? From what I read it appears to
turn on some hop-counting stuff; but from what Duane said
in reply to an earlier post of mine, it (also?) turns on
ping timing to DIRECT fetch hosts? Did I misunderstand?

May I suggest adding this in a more prominent place on the web page
please? I suspect the maintainers are assuming everyone has the
source distribution and therefore sees the documents there; I
didn't because I was running from the BSDI binary dist. I have now
installed the sources and found even more useful documentation.
I'd suggest direct links to all the source docs from the web page
if possible please.
