This is strange indeed. Just to be sure, does 
/usr/local/smokeping/lib/Smokeping/probes/FPing.pm exist (and is
it a plain file, not a symlink or something, with the whole
path readable by the web server user)?

I guess the "-I" perl option would do, but the "use lib" stuff should
be enough.

Desperate measures might be to insert some debugging info in
find_libdir() to print out each directory it's trying...
