Why we build only "iproute" package now? I guess we should build both "iproute" and "iproute2". And current iso includes debian packages.
Current iproute and iproute2 version is here:

dpkg -l | grep iproute
ii  iproute                          1:3.16.0-2                        all          transitional dummy package for iproute2
ii  iproute2                         3.16.0-2                          amd64        networking and traffic control tools

and details:

Description: networking and traffic control tools
 The iproute2 suite is a collection of utilities for networking and
 traffic control.
 These tools communicate with the Linux kernel via the (rt)netlink
 interface, providing advanced features not available through the
 legacy net-tools commands 'ifconfig' and 'route'.

@higebu I think the build process picks the debian jessie upstream version over our version, I'll dive in to this
