Anyway, you can do the following by hand. Unfortunately you have to do it every time the program is updated again.
sudo chmod u-s /bin/ping sudo /usr/sbin/setcap cap_net_raw=ep /bin/ping sudo chmod u-s /bin/ping6 sudo /usr/sbin/setcap cap_net_raw=ep /bin/ping6
Voilà, ping and ping6 are no SUID binaries anymore. Note that ls still signals (at least when you're using --color) that there is something special with the file, namely, there are filesystem attributes.
These are two easy cases. Other SUID programs need some research to see whether they can use filesystem capabilities as well and which capabilities they need.
