Comment (by jmr at macports.org):

 Updated: Recognise invalid hostnames like `image_magick.veidrodis.com`.
 (Sigh.) Check that the output from ping can be parsed as a number.
 Switched to using 3 ping packets and a 3-second timeout, since we
 effectively only have to wait for it once now that the pings run in
 parallel. Also simplified the code a bit.
