That is a misunderstanding... (which is enabled by "not good enough"
documentation and some conservative defaults). DLEP router and olsrd2
must be running in the same executable.

dlep_router is a "standalone" DLEP receiver... it does not communicate
with an outside program (except through the telnet interface), it can
be used to experiment with DLEP.
olsrd2 is the routing protocol... without the DLEP module.

I have now added another "application" called "olsrd2_dlep" which is
the same as olsrd2, just with DLEP.
