            Bug ID: 256911
           Summary: IPv6: rc.conf/rtadvd options: No flags can be
                    specified for rtadvd in rc.conf!
           Product: Base System
           Version: Unspecified
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: bugs_at_FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: ohartmann_at_walstatt.org

On 14-CURRENT as well as 13.0-RELENG and 13-STABLE (tested), /etc/rc.conf (or
the default in /etc/defaults/rc.conf) provides only the entries

rtadvd_enable
rtadvd_interfaces

for the IPv6 router advertisement daemon rtadvd(8). Man page of the rtadvd
offers some options which can be provided to the rtadvd, but there is no chance
to offer such options via a variable like "rtadvd_flags" to override the
default, i.e. for debugging purposes as we see this for a couple of other
rc-variables (see man rc.conf).

It would be nice to have a flag variable.
