[smokeping-users] Problem with tr.cgi and traceroute location

I'm using smokeping version 2.4.2 on FreeBSD. When I use tr.html, I see 
this error:

   Can't exec "traceroute": No such file or directory at 
/usr/local/smokeping/lib/Qooxdoo/Services/Tqr.pm line 34.

Line 34 shows:

   system "traceroute","-I","-q","1",$host;

On FreeBSD, traceroute is in /usr/sbin. If I symlink 
/usr/sbin/traceroute to /usr/bin/traceroute, it'll work. I'd rather not 
do this from a maintenance standpoint (someday I'm going to forget that 
I made the symlink, and tr.html will again show the error). Might you 
have a better suggestion?
