Just adding to my comments below - http://buildfarm.opencsw.org/ganglia
appears to be Ganglia 3.1.3, while my packages are 3.1.7, so it seems
highly likely to be a legacy install

If you delete the old gmetad.conf, gmond.conf and httpd-ganglia.conf,
pkgrm 3.1.3 and pkgadd the new packages, it should work instantly using
multicast mode.
