BOOTP and MVME5500

I recently upgraded to 4.9.1 and discovered that my MVME5500 would no
longer BOOTP.  After some research, I discovered that the "bsp.h" file
had been set to choose the Gigabit ethernet interface, a change
from the earlier version I was using (4.7).  However, even after
I changed connections, the module still fails to hear the BOOTP response
from my server.  If I modify "bsp.h" to select the 10/100 ethernet
interface on the MVME5500, it can successfully BOOTP.

Can anyone suggest what I should do to successfully use the Gigabit
ethernet interface on the MVME5500 with RTEMS 4.9.1?
