            Bug ID: 200359
           Summary: ifconfig(8) alias and -alias behave differently
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: pi at FreeBSD.org

This works:
# ifconfig re0 alias

The inverse does not work:
# ifconfig re0 -alias
ifconfig: bad value

It only works without the netmask:
# ifconfig re0 -alias

- it should probably work if a netmask is given
- the netmask could be ignored
- or the alias would only be removed if the proper netmask is given
