I have sent a pullup to get the IPv6 variables into bsd.README.

Now there's another (even worse, IMHO) issue: many of those variables are 
ALSO documented in mk.conf.4. Right now I dare saying that bsd.README is 
more complete than mk.conf.4, what shall we do - try to maintain redundant 
documentation, or merge into one place? Which one?

What place is more likely to get maintained by our documentation-shy 
developers? :)
