although this is not [email protected] , here is a hint for those who keep

# /sbin/ifconfig eth1 netmask
SIOCSIFADDR: Invalid argument
SIOCSIFNETMASK: Cannot assign requested address
SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address
SIOCSIFBROADCAST: Cannot assign requested address
# /sbin/ip add add dev eth1
# /sbin/ip add show eth1
3: eth1: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 1000
    link/ether 00:30:48:5d:0a:af brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet scope global eth1

Now using this IP with the binaries that are of the same vintage as
ifconfig(), that's really a discussion for [email protected] .
