[smokeping-users] running on a heterogeneous environment

Hello all,

I am running a master on linux and a slave on windows. So far so good. Don't
ask why I do this, it's been a major nightshift to get this far.

When the windows smokeping installation runs standalone (no master slave)
everything is fine but when I run in slave mode on windows I get:

FPing: probing 5 targets...
FPING: Executing /usr/bin/fping -C 20 ... and so on

Yielding a nice

'Ping: Got fping output: 'The system cannot find the specified path'

Any ideas how to force smokeping to use the local configured path for fping
(c:/smokeping/bin/fping.exe) instead of the one sent over by the master
