There are two possible solutions.

1. Use 'ifconfig ... metric #' to specify the hop count. The only caveat
   is that, as stated in the latest SunSolve...

         Bug Id: 1072454
         Category: network
         Subcategory: internet
         Release summary: mt-on5.0
         Synopsis: routed does not use metric set by ifconfig
                 Integrated in releases: mt-on7.0

2. Use gated. This is the way I am headed. This is (analogous to) a
   highly configurable version of routed, which also supports EGP and HELLO.
   Lokks like I'll be going with this method. I'm working on it now.

Thanks to all who responded. Unfortunately I neglected to save your
messsages, so I cannot cite you individually.
