   |  it is not sufficient to make NetBSD 5 ifconfig work
   |  comnpletely (not even just to display interface status).
 This looks to be an alignment problem - the sockaddr's containing
 the messages in the NEWADDR messages are aligned to a bigger boundary (8)
 than they should be for the NetBSD 5 format (4).
 Still looking for the best way to fix this.
 Note that while looking at the interface's config this way is still
 failing, the NetBSD 5 ifconfig can configure a HEAD system just fine
 (or at least all I tried, which admittedly was not a lot).
