should rt_msg1() zero rt_msghdr?

While debugging a problem with routing socket messages, I noticed that
messages contained random data in the rtm_seq, rtm_pid, and rtm_errno

In TCP/IP Illustrated, rt_msg1() contains a bzero() to clear rt_msghdr
fields.  This bzero() is not present in NetBSD-4 (which I am using) or
in the -current sources.  

Should a memset() be added where the bzero() used to be?
