There is a line about the fe80::%fxp1 destination in the routing table :
fe80::%fxp1/64                     link#2                         UC       =
   0        0      -  fxp1

It should be the correct address. However, I've only tested this kind of
addresses on PPP interfaces (including gif tunnels). You said your
configuration was working. How did you configure your routing then ?
