All what is inside "net-tools" package is old and hardly maintained.

"arp" can be replaced by "ip neigh", "ifconfig" by "ip addr" or "ip link", "route" by
"ip route", "ipmaddr" by "ip maddr", "mii-tool" by "ethtool", "netstat"
by "ss", "nameif" by "ip link", "iptunnel" by "ip tunnel". "iproute" and
"ethtool" packages are kept in sync with kernels and allow the user to
use the latest features.
Replace repetitive expressions by calls to a common function.
