I see no garbage. I see the same message all the Berkeley command-line
networking utilities have emitted for decades when they could not
connect to the first known address for a host with multiple addresses.
This is a useful diagnostic message. Do not remove it. NetBSD is not
Linux, nor is it DOS; it is BSD Unix, this is how the BSD tools have
always worked, and there is no reason to change it now.

This I at least partly agree with. I would like to see a way to
suppress the autoconfiguration of link-local v6 addresses on
interfaces; it greatly complicates firewall configuration and
the use of stacking interfaces like agr. But there would then
need to be an explicit way to say "please do put a link-local
address on _this_ interface", and I think we don't have that either.
