Description of problem:
The kernel has the IP Route Multipath Option activated to allow routing (load
balancing) over different paths with the same cost but zebra can't inject
multipath routes. This is due to zebra being configured with the default
--enable-mutipath=1 (only one route to a net/host with the same cost).
Please change the spec file to configure with --enable-mutipath=0 (unlimited
routes to a net/host with the same cost).
It's not urgent cause the user can always add the option themselfs and recompile.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. look at the spec file and zebra's configure script
Actual Results: no --enable-mutipath=0 in the configure command line in the
spec file and default is --enable-mutipath=1
Expected Results: --enable-mutipath=0 in the configure command line in the spec
Additional info: the same problem affects the zebra shipped with RHL 8.0
--enable-multipath appears to be turned on in the quagga-0.96.5-1 rpms
in current rawhide.
