[Xorp-hackers] suggest a debugger for xorp.

With regards tracing, there is inbuilt tracing of XRLs, though it  
only logs via XORP standard logging facility (xlog - see libxorp/xlog. 
[ch] )

Defining XRLDISPATCHTRACE turns on client side tracing.
Defining XRLTRACE turns on server side tracing.

To see some more switches controllable through the environment try:
	cd xorp/libxipc
	grep getenv *.cc

There are no explicit states associated with XRL interfaces.

You might also want to familiarize yourselves with gprof and gdb.
