Francis Dupont @ inria (in France) developped his implementation on 
NetBSD/Sparc - now he is running it on FreeBSD. Half a year ago in mails
he said that porting that to i386 is mostly a matter of implementing some
changes in ethernetcard drivers.
At Ripe meeting in Berlin Francis reported that in an interoperability test
in february nearly all implementations on the "market" (no comercial yet)
had some interoperability problems. Currently people are trying to set
up a 6bone to get a larger testbed.
I don't have any time to work on that, but seeing IPv6 in NetBSD would
be nice for me anyway ...
