I am using /usr/local/v6/sbin/pppd Could you suggest on someone who is actually using pppd with v6 between two peers? Do you think that looking for prefix length is a bug?

	i guess you are using netbsd 1.5 /usr/sbin/pppd on top of KAME-patched
	kernel.  please use /usr/local/v6/sbin/pppd if you are on KAME-patched
