IPv6 doesn't do ARP -- it uses neighbor discovery protocol messages on
a multicast address.

I am currently in possession of the NRL IPv6 implementation, including
IPSEC for both v6 and v4. It was written for 4.4lite. If anyone in the
U.S. who knows what they are doing is willing to take a crack at
integrating it (it will require a half day I suspect), let me know --
I don't have time for a week or two to try myself.
