Still no dice:

         inet netmask 0xfffffc00 broadcast
         ether 00:19:b9:f8:29:e3
         media: Ethernet autoselect (1000baseTX <full-duplex>)
         status: active
lo0: flags=80c9<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,NOARP,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
         inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3
         inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
         inet netmask 0xff000000
         inet netmask 0xfffffff0
