smokeping 2.7.3 implemented changes which are incompatible with gentoo's stable fping 3.13
Upstream has since committed a workaround after smokeping-2.7.3 release to accommodate distributions still shipping older fping packages
So we have a few options. If we want to wait until the next smokeping release number, this issue should be mitigated.
Otherwise. Please consider depending on a newer version of fping. I've tested with both 4.1 and latest 4.2 without issues.

"If an old binary is found when starting up our FPing probe, we'll
disable use of the new switches in order to maintain functionality to
users with older versions of fping."
Doesn't look like it's absolutely necessary.

Unless I'm miss understanding the timeline, our 2.7.3 package is broken for that commit occurred after that point release.
Yes, I agree this will eventually be fixed in the next smokeping version release.
