Hi guys, I'm trying to attach several IP's to one ethernet interface
(in this case, le0).  I made a few attempts to issue the following
command as outlined in man ifconfig(8C):

ifconfig le0 inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast

However, looking at ifconfig -a suggests that ifconfig takes in
as the broadcast address and doesn't use it as a secondary IP.  Is there
something I can do to solve this?  Perhaps a newer version of ifconfig?
I am running V1.1 of NetBSD, BTW.  Thanks in advance.
