You shouldn't have been trying to run both gated and routed. They both try
to do the same thing - manage the routing tables. They can easily step on
each other if they're both running.

Hmm. The -q option to routed seems to keep it hushed. So I'm not sure what
was going on. :-)

Oh, you'll have to get gated out of the packages collection. Something
about the license (probably some very specific restrictions therein :-)
prohibit us from bundling it w/ NetBSD.

Take care,
