The N800 has native support for IPv6, using the
osso-ipv6-enable.sh script (see 
http://ds-lite.garage.maemo.org/enabling_ipv6_on_maemo.html ). At
least, IIRC, it's a long time since I configured this.

On the N800 (wol)


jrh> uname -a
Linux wol 2.6.21-omap1 #2 Tue Oct 14 11:25:25 EEST 2008 armv6l unknown
jrh> ip a l wlan0

    inet6 fe80::219:4fff:fe9e:8f60/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

and then, from a desktop machine (eeyore):

jrh $ ping6 -n wol
PING fec0:1::219:4fff:fe9e:8f60(fec0:1::219:4fff:fe9e:8f60) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from fec0:1::219:4fff:fe9e:8f60: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=135 ms
64 bytes from fec0:1::219:4fff:fe9e:8f60: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=51.4 ms

64 bytes from fec0:1::219:4fff:fe9e:8f60: icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=102 ms

(my home radvd sets up a site address for all hosts and I use sixxs as a
global tunnel provided, advertised to the network through a gateway
(roo), [not running aiccu on the N800]).

Note that ifconfig on the N800 only shows IPv4 addresses.
