That tarpit module, as mentioned here by myself in a posting
from last week, is broken and is depending on a symbol that
is not exported for a reason.
To reiterate: It is trying to get the ttl to use in outgoing
ipv4 frames from the sysctl, but that should instead be obtained
from the routing metrics.
