ipv6 utilities in iputils (ping6, traceroute6, tracepath6?) don't have a
suid bit set. So, they can't be used except for root.
This is probably a good course as it is; not that many people are using
However, the optimal solution IMO would be to create an iputils-ipv6
which wouldn't be installed by default, which would include suid-bit
of these programs. This package should still Require: standard iputils.
Can't add a subpackage right now, right after 7.1.
