I have put this version of quagga-re into the Ceropackages-3.3
repository  for openwrt, which I keep on github. It does compile, but
I'm not in a position to test right now. Ceropackages can be added to
any given openwrt feed, and built for any target (hint, hint)

However I did put these new quagga binary packages for the wndr3700v2
and wndr3800 up with a very "testy" cerowrt release (with some
problems that I need to resolve before making a build more widely
available ! notably a firewall issue or three )

They are on my dev box at:


I'm *delighted* to see this fix as well as the cool new authentication code.
