The statement is accurate still. Quagga/NHRP does not support multicast
as of now. Alpine packages Quagga without additional features added.
And the above statement is based on:
 http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/quagga.git/plain/nhrpd/README.nhrpd

It would probably not be too complicated to implement, but you are the
first one to ask about this so far.

Thanks,
Timo
