They belong to the package. A user expects them in there and would have
to piece the package back together. Why does it make sense to leave them

If I use the FreeBSD version I get:

gcc -std=gnu99 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I..  -I../lib -I../lib 
-I../libinetutils -I../libicmp    -O2 -pipe 
-Wimplicit-function-declaration -MT ping6.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/ping6.Tpo 
-c -o ping6.o ping6.c
ping6.c: In function 'ping_init':
ping6.c:844:37: error: 'ICMP6_FILTER' undeclared (first use in this 
      setsockopt (fd, IPPROTO_ICMPV6, ICMP6_FILTER, &filter, sizeof
