Okay, for those of you who have iproute installed, you can still get things
up and running using the ip tool. Like this:

ip addr add dev lo
ip link set lo up
ip route add dev lo
ip addr dev eth0
ip link set eth0 up
ip route add dev eth0 metric 1

Change eth0 IP and default route as needed of course.
