I thought the Neighbour Discovery Protocol was the successor to ARP, and
that the routing advertisement that NetBSD has is something different. 
Now looking at Solaris 8, it seems they use NDP etc. for what NetBSD
calls routing advertisement. What's the deal here?

 * Is in.ndpd to Solaris what rtadvd is to NetBSD?
 * Is routing advertisement only a subset/part of NDP?
