 Log Message:
 Update xorp to 1.5.
 Based on patch provided by Mustafa Dogan in PR 39503.
 Add DESTDIR support and note that test target require bash and python.
 Release 1.5 (2008/07/22)
     - XORP now builds on DragonFlyBSD-1.10.1, DragonFlyBSD-1.12.2,
       FreeBSD-7.0, Linux Debian-4.0 (etch), Linux Fedora 7,
       Linux Fedora 8, Linux Fedora 9, Linux Gentoo 2008.0,
       Linux Ubuntu-7.04, Linux Ubuntu-7.10, Linux Ubuntu-8.04.1,
       NetBSD-4.0, OpenBSD-4.1, OpenBSD-4.2, OpenBSD-4.3, Mac OS X 10.5.2,
       Mac OS 10.5.3, and Mac OS X 10.5.4.
     - Addition of new FEA configuration statements to set the IPv4/IPv6
       unicast forwarding table IDs:
       fea {
           unicast-forwarding4 {
               table-id: 254
           unicast-forwarding6 {
               table-id: 254
       If the table ID is not configured, the FEA will use the default
       table ID for the system.
       Note that not all systems support multiple forwarding tables.
       Currently, they exist only on Linux (among all systems supported by
     - The "DISCARD" network interface flag is printed as appropriate
       when displaying the list of interfaces in the CLI.
     - Addition of new FEA configuration statement to support
       "unreachable" interfaces. Such interfaces are similar to "discard"
       interfaces, except that instead of silently throwing away packets,
       the system will respond with "ICMP destination unreachable".
       interfaces {
           interface my_unreachable {
               unreachable: true
               vif my_unreachable {
       The default value for the "unreachable" statement is false.
     - Addition of new FEA configuration statement to flag an interface
       for "management" purpose. An interface that is flagged as
       "management" might be used in the future by some of the protocols
       for protocol-specific purpose.
       interfaces {
           interface fxp0 {
               management: true
               vif fxp0 {
                   address {
                       prefix-length: 24
       The default value for the "management" statement is false.
     - Addition of support to configure VLANs on an interface.
       A VLAN is configured by using a "vlan" block that includes
       the VLAN ID:
       interfaces {
           interface fxp0 {
               vif fxp0 {
                   address {
                       prefix-length: 24
               vif vlan1 {
                   vlan {
                       vlan-id: 1
                   address {
                       prefix-length: 24
     - Addition of preliminary support to configure firewall rules.
       Firewall rules are configured by using numbered entries:
       firewall {
           rule4 100 {
               action: "drop"
               protocol: 6              /* TCP */
               source {
                   interface: "fxp0"
                   vif: "fxp0"
                   port-begin: 0
                   port-end: 65535
               destination {
                   port-begin: 0
                   port-end: 1024
       Note that compiling firewall support on Linux systems require
       patching some of the system header files. See ERRATA for details.
     - The following PIM-SM configuration statements have been deprecated,
       because PIM-SM doesn't use Router Alert IP option anymore:
       protocols {
           pimsm4 {
               interface foo {
                   vif foo {
                       enable-ip-router-alert-option-check: true
       protocols {
           pimsm6 {
               interface foo {
                   vif foo {
                       enable-ip-router-alert-option-check: true
     - The local system-independent xorp_random() implemenation is used
       instead of the random(3) provided by the system.
     - Improved MAC address support (classes Mac and EtherMac).
     - More consistent usage of XORP_OK and XORP_ERROR to return error
     - Bug fix in the internal mechanism for obtaining the IPv4 addresses
       from the system. After the bug fix, a secondary (alias) IP address
       can be specified with the "-i <addr>" command-line option to
       the xorp_rtrmgr or xorp_finder binaries.
     - No significant changes.
     - Critical bug fix that can be triggered by malformatted XRLs.
     - Addition of support for 64-bit integers: i64 and u64 for
       signed and unsigned respectively.
     - Addition of preliminary mechanism to log events to a file or
       to a syslog facility.
     - Addition of support to run XORP in background (in daemon mode).
     - Bug fix related to assigning the node ID position in case the
       previous (sibling) node was deleted at the same time a new node
       was added.
       This fixes "Found out-of-order term(s) inside policy ..." error
       inside the policy manager.
     - The "-c <cmd>" command line option can be used more than once to
       run multiple commands.
     - Fix a long configuration delay when using xorpsh in
       non-interactive mode (e.g., "cat commands.txt | xorpsh").
     - Addition of a new "-e" command line option. It can be used to tell
       xorpsh to exit immediately if the connection to the Finder fails.
     - No significant changes.
     - Major refactoring of the FEA/MFEA internals.
     - Critical bug fix that affects recent NetBSD and OpenBSD releases.
     - Critical IPv6-related bug fix when adding unicast forwarding
       entries to the kernel. This bug was exposed only on *BSD systems
       with 64-bit CPU.
     - If MFEA is started, it will explicitly enable the multicast
       forwarding flags that have been added to recent OpenBSD releases:
       net.inet.ip.mforwarding (for OpenBSD-3.9 and later) and
       net.inet6.ip6.mforwarding (for OpenBSD-4.0 and later).
     - No significant changes.
     - Addition of support for "show ripng" xorpsh operational commands.
     - Critical RIPng-related bug fix. Previously the RIPng installed
       routes had incorrect outgoing interface toward the destination.
     - Bug fix related to the TTL for RIPng multicast packets: now it is
       set to 255 as specified in the protocol specification (RFC 2080)
       instead of 1.
     - Added support for RFC 3626 Optimized Link State Routing Protocol.
       This is a fully fledged XORP routing process with policy route
       redistribution capability. The work was generously funded over
       2007/2008 by CenGen, Inc.
     - Bug fix related to OSPFv3 link-local scope LSAs. Previously the
       link-local scope LSAs were incorrectly flooded to links other
       than the one they belonged to.
     - Bug fix related to OSPFv3 Inter-Area-Prefix-LSAs. The check for
       the minimum size of an Inter-Area-Prefix-LSA was incorrect so
       short prefixes such as the default route would be rejected.
     - Added a clear database command.
     - In the OSPFv2 configuration "passive" is no longer a bool but a
       directive. Previously setting an interface to passive would set
       the interface to loopback and announce a host route for the
       interface. Using the passive keyword will still set the
       interface to loopback but now the network will be announced. If
       the previous behaviour of of announcing the host route is
       required the host variable can be set to true.
     - Added support for 4-byte AS numbers, as detailed in RFC 4893.
       From 1st Jan 2009 4-byte AS numbers will be allocated by default
       by RIPE, so it is desirable that all BGP implementations support
       four-byte AS numbers by that time.  Currently 4-byte support is
       not enabled in XORP by default, but can be enabled using the
       "enable-4byte-as-numbers" configuration option.
     - Bug fix that prevented the deletion of interface-specific routes
       using xorpsh.
     - No significant changes.
     - An implementation of Lightweight IGMP/MLD is available in
       directory ${XORP}/contrib/mld6igmp_lite. It can be used instead
       of the existing MLD/IGMP vanilla implementation by using the
       following command before compiling XORP:
         ./configure --with-mld6igmp_lite
     - No significant changes.
     - No significant changes.
     - No significant changes.
