The openconnect expects the "route", "netstat", and "ifconfig" programs to be available in the PATH when running. This can be seen in the /etc/vpnc/vpnc-script numerous times (one example is line 360).

Steps to reproduce:

This will come up in an instance where net-tools is not present on the system but openconnect is.

This is from the vpnc package, not openconnect. Looking at the script, all calls to ifconfig, at least, are guarded by conditionals, and it appears to use ip on Linux. The package already has a dep on iproute2 for that.

What issue are you seeing, exactly?
