None the less, look for something called "smcroute".  You should be able to
use this to manually peg up a route and generate the join.

Also take a look at the output of netstat -n -g to see the join.

igmpproxy is also good if this is a stub network and you're trying to proxy
joins.

Let me know what ends up working for you.  I've fought this one once
already.  I never did like the results, but I ended up using the igmp proxy
method.
