if this switch wants the routers option, why doesn't it list it on the
parameter request list?

you "should" complain to the manufacturer, but you may find it easier
to over-ride the PRL and place the routers option on it.  note that
rfc2132 section 3.3 stipulates that the subnet mask must always
precede the routers option.

i think there are examples of how to override the
parameter-request-list option in one of the manpages, but i can't
recall which.
