Please see also:

The Quagga maintainers were aware of this 4-5 months ago, and that in 
order to correctly support OpenSolaris (as well as Linux and FreeBSD 7), 
RFC 3678 is the way to go.

[The reasons why SSM has historically not been well supported are, well, 
more political (i.e. money, control of bandwidth by capital) than 
technical... but... researching this further I leave to the kind readers!]
