fixed - no idea now why I did that

great. I'll import into CVS and post an approval in a sec

The only other change I made was preserving timestamps (install -p)

I tested by doing a bt in gdb. If I don't strip fping6, then I get symbols 
for both fping and fping6 by installing the fping-debuginfo. If I do strip 
fping6, no symbols.... AFAICT, -debuginfo is working now. Want to 
double-check it before I request a build?
