There *just* was a thread around here: either use ip -r route (-r means
try to resolve IP address to name, your old "route" did exactly that),
or just install net-tools (as you said above).

Folks, don't get so worked up when your favourite package is not
installed by default. Otherwise the default install would end up
installing *all* packages! Just go install it. If enough of you
do (and enable popcon, hint, hint) it might become again default,
Whining here won't help and just makes the mailing list more
FWIW, I have net-tools installed and use old and new. Happy camper.
