If built without libjansson installed, mtr has no json support (though --help says it does). The package jansson should be added to the dependencies.

> mtr --json -c 5
mtr: unrecognized option '--json'

Additional info:
* mtr 0.94-1

Steps to reproduce:
* Install mtr
* Run mtr --json

Can confirm. I rebuilt with community/jansson installed and the --json option worked fine. Just needs a makedep

Same problem with 0.95-1, this seems to have been forgotten.
