zebra's bgpd runs fine on OpenBSD. running quite a few fulls mesh bgp
sessions with it here.
zebra's ospfd is a bug collection.

and the configuration process is fucked, you have to compile zebra on the
target system. if you change the kernel, well, really, change the network
interface config like leaving ppp and stuff out, zebra is totally confused
and needs to be recompiled on that kernel.

Unix is very simple, but it takes a genius to understand the simplicity.
