        rtsol -a gives the error:
failed to get link layer information for 
failed to initialize 

And rtsold -a logs:
<ifconfig> failed to get link layer information for 
<main> failed to initialize 

They both work if an interface name is specified.

        Run rtsol -a or rtsold -a.
        The routine to get the list of interfaces, autoifprobe(),
writes past the end of its buffer. The first time through the loop,
n == 0, and it allocates space for one string (i.e., argv[0]). However,
the n++ followed by argv[n] = NULL writes to argv[1], which hasn't
been allocated yet.

It seems that the block of code after the section that loops through
the interface list will make sure the array is terminated with a NULL
pointer; I don't think it's necessary to do so in the loop itself.
