nagios plugin check_ping

i tried to use the check on a system with 2 interfaces (ip4 on eth0
(world interface) and ip6 on eth1 (internal network))

The ping command itself needs -I eth1 to ping hosts with ipv6 hosts on
internal network

  ping -I eth1 fe80::f4b0:14ff:fe5a:aaaa works fine
  ping fe80::f4b0:14ff:fe5a:aaaa didn't work

Because of this it seems to be neccessary to get an option "-I
interface" in the nagios-plugin too.

Is this possible?

Kind regards
