	I did a quick which and search of the ports that yielded nothing  
concrete regarding this command. I believe that this a proprietary  
Juniper utility. I found similar reference to this at this url:,124019,124019

	As much as I hate passing the buck, I'd have to punt this back to  
someone familiar with the changes to FreeBSD made in JunOS.
