Confirmed...I've got an older a.out system which had the device
specification in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 on the "route" command. At 1.3.99 my
nfs mounts started failing because the route wasn't being added. Strange
thing is the the route DIDN'T show up after ifconfig (netstat -r at that
point showed no route), but it WAS there after booting was finished (had to
manually mount NFS at that point).
