Of course.

Why?  All the necessary patches are on the web site.

Why do you have to add anything?  You use the patches available from the
web site.  It builds fine against either libping10-0 or libping12-0.

If I were you, I'd find myself an old copy of the original Debian source
package.  It wants fixing, as the last one didn't work correctly, but it
has more than a few patches the web site does not, some security-related.

That's what I've done... I'm maintaining it locally for my own uses and
have (a) repaired the build system, (b) patched the hell out of it
(although I still can't get the EXIF patch I found to apply properly).
