on NetBSD 1.4.1, I found that Netatalk-asun would only work with the
"-router" option added in atalkd.conf, like

ae0 -router -phase 2 -net 339-342 -addr 339.3 -zone "Waldpark"

This is annoying because all your pre-System 9 Macs will pop up modal
alerts every time the NetBSD "router" goes away (e.g. crash or simply high
serial port load).
