Or a libc thing?  I'm running on FC2.

Although I don't like the idea of predefined limits :)  I'll probably
submit a patch based on if_nameindex in the meantime, hopefully tomorrow
if Alexandre commits the patch I already sent today.  It removes a lot of
the silliness of ifenum.c, so aside from not directly solving your
problem, take a look at that and perhaps patch it.
