The xboard protocol originates from the interfaces of the really old BSD chess program that preceedes gnu chess.

But the source code for gnuchess 3 or 4 is still out there so you only have to look there for it. The stuff is in the file nondsp.c

It would appear that gnuchess 4.0 does not support ping/pong. I would like my engine to work with both 4 and 5. Is there any other tricks that I may

We gave up supporting GNU Chess 4 before I even became a co-maintainer.

Afraid you are definitely on your own with that one.
