[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#863981: check_ping uses IPv6 with -4

Package: monitoring-plugins-basic
Version: 2.2-3


check_ping doesn't forward the "-4" option to ping, and ping prefers
IPv6 now (i.e. probably whatever is configured through gai.ping).

Giving upstream only allows configuring "ping-command" and
"ping6-command" (there is no explicit "ping4-command") I suggest adding
"-4" to the "ping-command" in debian/rules in the meantime.
