I have added explicit netmasks to every conceivable route and
ifconfig, but still this message. It seems that the following
will always eliminate this message.

(1) executed in rc.inet1 script:
/sbin/ifconfig lo netmask

(2) start pppd dialup using default route immeadiatly after
/sbin/route del default

When the connection is established, the continuous "route forgot to
specify route netmask" message stops. ??
