That is the problem, a route -n is without a gateway assignment and has 
been missing since my first attempt to install stretch.

Then why, after giving the installer all that info, and it uses that 
during the install, does it not have a gateway set after the initial 
reboot or any subsequent reboot?

And nothing you can do will give it a gateway, so you wind up playing 
10,000 monkeys writing Shakespear, and a reboot for every session of 
nano trying to find the magic twanger that makes it work? I have made 
jessie work on an armhf but its been done after the initial reboot.  An 
armbian install that claims its debian 9, is the only install out of 5 
or 6 from various sources including the debian-arm iso twice.

For the jessie install on an r-pi-3b, this /e/n/i works:

auto lo

# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0

# regular network for coyote.den
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.NN.12
gateway 192.168.NN.1

but it doesn't work if the interface address is given in address/24 
format so the netmask isn't needed. To me, thats all the evidence needed 
to point the guilty finger at something in the ifup code.

As in "ifup -vvv eth0"?

What log file, on stretch, would I find that trace data in? Theres not 
anything in /v/l/syslog w/o the -v. And theres nothing more frustrating 
than a silent failure like this has been so far.
