No spanning tree, no VLAN. 2737 im not familiar with. [Goes and
fetches the RFC]. No, no support for that. There is no public client
for SNTP either.

What you probably want to do is look at the FreeBSD sources and see if
they include support for 1Q and spanning tree. If so, it should not be
two hard to port them into the FreeBSD stack in eCos. For the snmp and
SNTP you will have to write them yourself.
