ummm, I believe gated would be the FIRST one.  I used it
10+ years ago to great benefit.  I believe it had the
reference implementation for OSPF.

Worked fine on a 48MB Ultrix box with over 25000 routes!
(man! the internet was big).

Just a side note that OpenBSD is developing a BGP daemon.

Henning Brauer made the first commit in Dec 17 and it's seen
a lot of activity (in CVS) along with Claudio Jeker.

It might be of interest to take a look at that for inclusion
into NetBSD (at the least as a pkg).

Zebra's a little funky and, as I recall, GateD was always
in Beta.  I await code flaws in them.
