README-IPv6.html gets created through the "readme-ipv6" target in

At the moment it performs a simple "grep" through all the Makefiles and files for the patterns

While this may already miss some assignments (think line continuations
with a backslash) it's rather fast.

It seems that this is another example of information we would like to
have for all the packages in the tree. To correctly retrieve this
information we have to invoke "make" for every package which is much
more costly than searching through a set of text files.
