Excellent ;-)

> Terminated

Can you confirm where your zebra-socket is? (netstat -lp) On some system it 
is an tcp-socket on port 2600, on other systems it is an Unix Domain Socket 
usally located at /var/run/quagga/zserv.api. 

Per default the quagga-plugin looks for /var/run/quagga/zserv.api and if the
connect failes, the message above is issued. 

If your quagga listened on TCP (for security-reasons this is not recommend as 
anybody from localhost can change routes) you must comment out the 
line in the Makefile.
