Re: route command cannot set up route through point-to-point interface

That's odd; it's always worked fine for me.  Could you give a specific
example, showing the configuraitno, the route command attempted, and
the failure message?

I'm guessing here, trying to reverse-engineer the behaviour you don't
like from the patch, but it looks almost as though you're expecting to
specify the _local_, not _remote_, address of the .2. interface on the
route command.  If so, I'd say the bug is in your expectations; in
other cases, the gateway given to route(8) is the (non-local) address
of the next-hop machine, not an address on the local machine.
