Hm. Let me check my @work tunnel startup scripts.
tunnel labIV-gw-outer labIV-gw-outer-remote
inet6 fe80::1/64 up
!/sbin/route add -inet6 2001:db8:0042:5040:: fe80::2%$int -prefixlen 60
I think (but didn't look at the source) you'd need prefixlen 128 for
point to point addresses, and get a network otherwise.
