Well the syntax is currently

show ip ospf interface [interface]

So you could simply have quagga recognise a pseudo interface name of
"all" to display all interfaces. 

Would cause problems if somebody ever actually had an interface
literally called all and wanted to display it only, but that seems
rather rare...

Alternatively you could have
show ip ospf interface-all 
but that doesn't seem very nice to me!
