           Summary: net/dhcpcd: pkg-message is misleading or wrong or not

The current pkg-message for net/dhcpcd is:

The default FreeBSD kernel does not allow userland to provide IPv6
Prefix Routes when the kernel is handling Router Advertisements.
The default dhcpcd configuration will disable the kernel from handling
Router Advertisements.

See http://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=194485 for a patch.

However, there are no visible options in `dhcpcd.conf` to indicate the kernel
is disabled from handling Router Advertisements. There are no options in dhcpcd
documentation for such an effect.

In addition, the patch linked to has been merged in `13.2` and higher, so if
there IS an option of dhcpcd that is disabling kernel route advertisements, it
should be removed (to be clear, I don't think such a thing exists).
