Well, at least I don't have different versions - both machines are
1.5.2/i386. And for kernel/userland mismatch... i'd hope that's not the
case for a NetBSD release. ;)

Still "-a ag" dives me all addresses, even the link local ones:

	miyu% ping6 -a ag
	PING6(2096=40+8+2048 bytes) 2002:d954:1e32:1::1 --> 2002:c25f:6cbf:1::1
	112 bytes from 2002:c25f:6cbf:1::1:
