I noticed that avahi-resolve is returning incorrect IPv6 link-local
address for a local interface.

I tried looking up for the issue myself, but I'm not familiar with the
interface, avahi is using to lookup interface's address.

[abbe at monte-cristo ~/ports/avahi-app]$ ifconfig rl0
rl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:1b:38:ea:5c:76
        inet6 fe80::21b:38ff:feea:5c76%rl0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1 
        inet netmask 0xffffffe0 broadcast
        inet6 fdxx:xxxx:xxxx::yyyy prefixlen 48 
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active
[abbe at monte-cristo ~/ports/avahi-app]$ avahi-resolve -6 -n monte-cristo.local

Can anyone else confirm this ? Or problem with my configuration, hmm...?

Thanks in advance.
