BSD route daemon

Most of the systems on our network run some form of the route daemon
'routed'. Network == multiple (but few) IP networks (and subnets) on
ethernets. Gateways are all 4.X BSD UNIX host computers. No Internet
gateway, YET (but we are hoping).

I would like to know the pros and cons of replacing the daemons with
hardcoded routes. We are having problems with a few non-gateway
systems adverstising incorrect info. Like today one system (Ultrix
1.2) said: "I'm a gateway to 255.255.255.255"! Subjects I am interested
in are: system overhead, network drain, static vs dynamic route tables,
etc.

We will be bring up EGP on our gateways to Internet.
