Because of this, I started to wonder if there's just some coincidence
at play here and NetBSD 8 somehow grabs a bad router when it does its
DHCP negotiation.  I have a working NetBSD 7.1. setup which has a
different IPv6 router so, after booting up the NetBSD 8 system, I
manually changed the default router to match the NetBSD 7.1 system.
Then I started getting replies to my IPv6 connections outside the
LAN.  So, the problem appears to be a purely a local one. :/
