Answering the actual underlying question (I didn't have the time to
do it before), no, I believe there is currently no way to add/delete
routing information in Hurd, just because there interface for it wasn't
added to pfinet.

Actually, I can't even find the struct ortentry definition, so I guess
this is just oldie.

As I referenced in my earlier mail, that's explained in the wiki page:
the _IOT_ortentry macro has to be defined according to the definition of
the structure, as explained on the wiki page.

The reference is hidden in the _IOW macro call.
