I've got an IPv6 connection established via & I can ping6 properly...but...when I start up rtadvd to advertise routes
and configuration to my other machines, I get the following message in
/var/log/messages and none of the other machines can get their
configuration properly.

option has null length on fpa0. Treat as not included.

fpa0 is a DEFPA FDDI card and the box is running NetBSD 1.5.

This is all gotten by running rtadvd by hand with the command line of
"rtadvd -D fpa0"
