Bug#646221: /sbin/route wrapper doesn't provide FreeBSD CLI as expected

Package: openvpn
Version: 2.1.3-2
Severity: important
Tags: patch
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd

OpenVPN is mostly broken on GNU/kFreeBSD because it attempts to use /sbin/route
with FreeBSD command-line interface.  /sbin/route is a compatibility wrapper
which attempts to map some functionality but is not a complete replacement
for FreeBSD route.

As a result, route management behaves unreliably (necessary routes might not be
added, and when connection is terminated stale routes are left behind).

Solution is very simple, just use /lib/freebsd/route instead which provides
the FreeBSD route command that OpenVPN expects.

Please, could you fix this problem in Sid and in Squeeze as well?
