Start using the right tool for the job (I mean: "ip addr show"),
and stop blaming Debian. Using ifconfig by the way will show
you only part of the information (eg: if there's more than one
IP assign, ifconfig will not show it).

If ifconfig is the only reason why we should move everything,
change $PATH and so on, please find a better excuse, because
I'm not at all buying into that one!
