Seems as though there was a recent discussion about this, perhaps it was
on the -dev list. I use Berlios CVS/SVN (whatever it is) and fetch a copy.
Net-Tools is not dead. It doesn't have an extremely active development
work going on, but there are changes every now and then. Mostly fixes
for the code the patches do, but there is a lot more than that, that has
been updated.

It builds just fine for me (Bruce mentions there are some warnings), but
I'm on 32-bit for this build. I think Bruce builds 64-bit though.

For Bruce: This reminds me, you mentioned the standard config included
support for too many networks. I don't use the config program. I have
pre-made config.{h,make,status} files that I copy into the root of the
source dir and then compile. We could do something like that using files,
or cat.
