Hi. I may have asked this before. Do any of you want to vote to add ipv6 to 
HLFS. Ipv6 is a better protocol, and includes several security extentions. 
One package needs to be added, iputils, to get ping6 and traceroute6. It 
needs two patches, one for kernel 2.6 headers, and another for uclibc.

The only thing I dislike is that the ipv6 kernel module is marked as 
expiremental.

When it comes down to it, it will still be an option for the builder. Either 
way, I can make an LFS hint for ipv6.
