Souped up version of traceroute...

In response to my query before the last nanog meeting, I got a bunch
of responses of the form "well, now that you mention it, it sure would
be cool if traceroute...". I also got several requests for our local
version (esp. re: MTU discovery). I went through and did a little
cleaning up on our version, and then added a couple of new features.
The full list of added features in this version is:
- Source route
- MTU discovery
- Statistics reporting
- Higher precision timings reported (with caveats...)
- Owner email lookup
The one thing I didn't add was the prtraceroute function. I would
like to add this eventually, but it seemed like a bit longer of a
project than what time I had available.
I tried to test out by the old and the new features on both DEC and
SGI machines. There may be bugs on other architectures; patches will
be cheerfully incorporated :-)
