[smokeping-users] How to get working smokeping on Raspberry PI (Rasbian 7.8)

The fping that gets installed with "apt-get smokeping" on this
system/os-version is "broken" from smokeping's point of view.

How to fix:
- apt-get install smokeping

Configure smokeping as normal, I used this:

- wget latest fping from http://fping.org/dist/fping-3.10.tar.gz (fping.org)
- tar xvzf fping-3.10.tar.gz; cd fping-3.10
- ./configure --prefix=/usr/bin
- make install

Problem seems to be that the fping included in the distro outputs to
stderr instead of stdin (or vice versa, I don't know)
