OK, sort of good news sort of indeterminate news.  I compiled up a
version on FreeBSD #11 stable. The problem might not be there. However,
I was not able to bring up all my peers as bgp passwords do not seem to
work. I have about 9 peers that I use passwords with and its possible
those peers might be triggering the problem. But with the other 20+
peers, I was not able to see the issue, at least for the 15min or so
that I have the peers up so far.

Other minor details I noticed-- from the configs I cp'd over from
Quagga, for whatever reason

bgp log-neighbor-changes

I re added it and it seems to work

peers seem to take a long time to come up. Suspiciously, about 180secs
after a hard clear or start up

show ip bgp sum
displays all the peers out of order ?

Anyways, I will need to get the bgp passwords working before I am more
confident to say whether the bug is still there or not.

the config seems to say it is

configure:18185: checking whether TCP_MD5SIG is declared
