[dpdk-dev] pktgen-2.9.13 not compiling with gcc 4.9 because of -Wdiscarded-qualifiers / 2.9.12 fine

pktgen-2.9.13 is not compiling with gcc 4.9, see below

2.9.12 is compiling fine with gcc 4.9, so looks like new
IPv6 code recently added is the culprit.

I think -Wdiscarded-qualifiers is available only with gcc 5+
