   Network manager is a default install on at least Ubuntu and Fedora.
   It is certainly widely used.

I wouldn't know, it is a GUI tool.  libnl on ther other hand is not
standard from what I can see.  So far, rishi has only a list of two or
three programs that use it (networkmanager, iw), iproute2 which is
common does not use it either according to rishi.

If we can include libnl in inetutils, then that would be satisfactory
even if libnl is not standard, or widley used.
