I just did.

AFAICT from the apt-cache results on both platforms, as well as from
<http://experimental.ftbfs.de/build.php?pkg=iproute>, iproute isn't
available either on GNU/kFreeBSD or on GNU/Hurd, unfortunately.

At least, on GNU/kFreeBSD, we have net-tools with the following content:

should it be of some help.

I'm quite new to GNU/kFreeBSD, so I don't know (yet) much about
low-level things, but willing to learn and help if I can.
