mtr should be setuid root like ping and traceroute. All those tools
are frequently used by normal non-root users for good reasons.
Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2004-10-06 10:47:17 EDT
As already stated in the other bugreport, mtr won't be setuid as we
have a very strict rule for doing that to only a few programs and only
if absolutely necessary (and for good reason).

Read ya, Phil
