Well, my advice was not complete. Why upgrading net-tools is necessary you
also have to upgrade /sbin/ifup to a newer version. The problem's cause is
that Linux 2.2 adds a route to every interface automatically. The ifup
script then adds another route ...

The program should be linked against libpthread, so the above link command
lacks the -lpthread option. The question is now, why. I think this happens
due to a bug which has been fixed in the meantime. Please try to upgrade to
the libc from the Redhat 5.2 directory, does rebuilding work them?
