> Well, are MANET routers 'routers' at all?

Yes.


> Does a MANET router execute the longest-prefix match algorithm?

Yes. Every router MUST. This is Router Requirement (RFC 1812, page 75)
And many other RFCs. Dig yourself.
Also applies to hosts.


> Does a MANET router select an output interface depending on the result
> of that agorithm?  Or is it just doing it with always the same result?

Also RFC 1812.

Pure non-info.
