Permission to reconfigure netmask denied

A cfengine (1.6.0a3) running on a Solaris 2.7 machine... I have a line
in the configuration like:

interfaces:
        "hme0"  netmask=255.255.255.0 broadcast=ones

The cfengine run yields the following result:

Found netmask: 255.255.255.192
cfengine:email21: The netmask is incorrectly configured, resetting...
Found broadcast address: 208.169.17.191
cfengine:email21: Broadcast address was 208.169.17.191 (should be
bit-type one) Resetting interface...
cfengine:email21: Permission to reconfigure netmask denied.
cfengine:email21: ioctl: Bad address
Trying to set broad to 208.169.17.255 = 208.169.17.255
cfengine:email21: Permission to reconfigure broadcast denied.
cfengine:email21: ioctl: Bad address

Is there a problem with cfengine?  Why can't it reset the netmask?  It's
running as root.

Thanks in advance.
