FreeBSD 8.2 and Bird 1.3.3.

I do my internal peering between routes on loopback interfaces.
All the loopback interfaces is announced over ospf.

To be able to get an bgp session the 'multi hop 4;' is needed.

The question I have is what value should the 'next hop' be? I would like to 
have it to the neighbour address of the peering session but it seems it always 
the nearest physical network interface address (to the neighbour) that's 'next 

I did even try with setting bgp_next_hop=; within the filter of the 
bgp protocol but that did not work.
