route, ping, where's the net?

The answer to this has *got* to be simple, but I just can't see it.
I have a Sun Ultra-1 running Gentoo-Sparc64. I can ping any address
on the internet just fine. When I run ifconfig the ethernet cards are
properly detected and given their correct values.
But, when I run route, the system just sits there -- I don't get any
kernel routing table.
When I run netstat -nr, though, I do get a routing table... though not
with netstat -r. Well, the only difference is DNS, right? But then I
don't see why pinging domain names should work (and it does).
If I try to add a default route like so:
#route add default gw 192.168.1.1
it responds with a message that the file exists. (Huh?)
This has *got* to be something low-level and obvious that I'm just not
seeing. Suggestions? What should I try next?
