Actually, to follow up on my own message, I just tried this on one of my 
NetBSD/sparc machines, and setting the route's mtu works on it, as well.  

So, for kicks, I decided to add a static route to the other host on the 
i386 without setting the mtu, and I get the same failure in 
arpresolve().  "Hmmm..."

This stinks of a byte-order problem, given it failed on a little-endian 
machine ... I'll try and look at this closer again tomorrow ... but, I'm 
curious if anyone has a suggestion as to where to begin, given this
