Probably. Different unix systems have different places and names for
their startup scripts. Have a look through /etc and the directories
underneath it. Don't be afraid to 'grep route *' to see which script
might contain route commands already (but pipe the output through 'less'
or something so that you don't cop a screenfull of junk if you hit a
binary file.

('grep route * | less')
