You shouldn't need to do that. If you post your full output with the problem someone might be able to help, which could also help any other people with your problem.

Yes, iputils was installed. I did 'fix' it with a small workaround:

# mg /usr/bin/ping6
   ping -6 $@
# chmod +x /usr/bin/ping6

Strange, I get

checking for ping... /bin/ping
checking whether PING has working -6 option... yes

with no problems. Do you have iputils installed?

Trying to install this package I get error:

checking for ping6... no
configure: error: cannot find required executable, bailing out

OK that is odd, I was building with devtools and believe that pulls in base but I guess not.

Both are part of the base group which is assumed to be installed although the packaging guidelines don't specify this.

'procps-ng' 'iputils' are needed as deps, otherwise:

checking for sysctl... no configure: error: cannot find required executable, bailing out

checking for ping... no configure: error: cannot find required executable, bailing out

I will add screen as an optional dependency. The service files here are provided by upstream, so please file a request to them on github.

screen is required by link-balancer

please also add link-balancer.service. I am a noob at writing systemd unit file. I am currently using the following systemd unit for link-balancer

Description=Link Balancer for FireHOL

ExecStart=/sbin/screen -S 'link-balancer' -d -m /sbin/link-balancer loop                                                               
ExecStop=/sbin/screen -S 'link-balancer' -X kill
