The link-local address is automatically configured, based on the mac
address of the interface, so you can't (and wouldn't want to) configure
it manually.  If you want to configure unicast addresses manually, use
the /48 from your provider/broker, broken down into whatever prefixlen
you want.

What is your current fxp0 configuration?
