Does anyone know of a free ping flood (some people call it flood ping) utility for Windows? I want something portable that I can install anywhere. I use ping flooding to primarily test for packet loss and jitter, and find the native tools on Windows to be rather frustrating and sometimes they're the only tools available to test end-to-end connectivity.

Have you considered using something like iperf instead? If you use the UDP test it will report packet loss and jitter for you already. Iperf binaries exist for many platforms including windows. The windows binary runs on any recent windows, and doesn't require installation.
Usually people are interested in jitter because they they have VoIP going. Almost all VoIP systems use UDP for the data. So doing a test using a UDP is more likely to give you real results.
Here is some example output.
