source ip detection doesn't work with fping3

      Description

      fping finally seems to be picked up by a new maintainer - which is great (see http://fping.org/ )

      the problem is that zabbix source ip detection breaks with fping3.

      zabbix tries to detect whether fping help output contains -I or -S flag (in that order), and uses that option with the source ip specified.

      unfortunately for zabbix, fping3 uses -I for source interface, and -I comes first in the fping3 help output, so zabbix picks it up and uses -I<sourceip>, which fails and makes fping3 to ignore this parameter

      this is true for both fping 3.0 and 3.1-rc1 (both already used in gentoo)
