net/fping: fix WITHOUT_IPV6 mode

If one builds and uses net/fping version 4.2 with option IPV6 disabled,
the command fping -4 always fails with wrong error message:

fping: can't specify both -4 and -6

This makes it impossible using fping probes with SmokePing
as it runs fping with -4 option. This change fixes this.
Also, do not install symlinks for fping6 and manual in this case.

PORTREVISION not bumped as default build is not affected.

net/fping: Update to 4.2

While I'm here:
* Move options block a bit further down according to the PHB

Changelog:

* New option -x / --reachable to check if the number of reachable hosts is
  >= a certain number. Useful for example to implement connectivity-checks
* Allow decimal numbers for '-t', '-i', '-p', and '-Q'
* Fix build with --disable-ipv6
* Fix hang with '-6', with ipv6 kernel module, but not loaded
* Assume '-6' if the binary is named 'fping6' (this is mostly for special
  embedded-distro use cases, and not meant to be used generally in place of
  compiling IPv6-only binary or using '-6')

Add an option to disable IPv6 support

In jail environment, because fping 4.0 comes
with combined IPv4/IPv6 support, you need to enable
IPv6 for the jail even if you will not use IPv6.

This patch adds an IPV6 option, enabled by default,
but who can be turn off to build fping without IPv6
support and used it inside a jail without IPv6.

According to the Porter's Handbook (5.12.2.3.) default options must be added to
OPTIONS_DEFINE. This policy has been implemented only recently that's why we
have many ports violating this policy.

This patch adds the default options specified in the Porter's Handbook to
OPTIONS_DEFINE where they are being used. Ports maintained by
gnome@FreeBSD.org, kde@FreeBSD.org and x11@FreeBSD.org have been excluded.

ports/net/fping patch to add -S source_addr option

        Several people have produced some patches for fping that adds an
        option to select the IP source_address for queries and some have
        said they submitted them to the sourceforge fping maintainer.
        Since I did not see any official fping distributions that include
        any of those patches, I recently Cc-ed the sourceforge fping
        maintainer's address in a question to the smokeping mailing-list
        asking about that patch but so far I have heard back only from
        that list with a pointer to a debian patch. Per request from
        Jason Harris, I include here a copy of the patch that is usable
        in ports/net/fping/files that adds that option.
