Ok, I understand.

But what I really wanted to know is what does libnet do to come around 
the inability to bind to a socket to a interface?

If the functionality to do this in libnet is just a few codelines, then 
the same functionality maybe can be coded directly into olsrd so we 
don't need the whole libnet?

I'm just curious ;)
