Modified Files:
	basesrc/sbin/route: route.8 route.c

Log Message:
Provide a short output format for the get command that only prints the
address corresponding to RTA_GATEWAY, or nothing if it doesn't exist.
Modify the exit value of route depending on this, so that one can do
stuff like:

gw=`route -sn get default 2>/dev/null`
if [ -z "$gw" ]; then
	echo no default route
	exit 1
ping -w1 -c1 $gw >/dev/null 2>&1
if ! route -sn get $gw >/dev/null; then
	echo default gateway not responding
	exit 1
echo default gateway is at $gw
