It uses user level daemons to maintain the kernel routing table.

routed and zebra seem to be packaged for Debian.  routed is the bog
standard daemon for handling RIP - not particuarly nice, but it does the
job and a fair proportion of the suckage is down to RIP.  Zebra is more 
modern and handles a selection of protocols (including RIP and OSPF) but 
is still relatively new.

There's also gated, but that was non-free and unpackaged last time I 
checked.
