That's what I get when I put ipv6_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf :

$ ifconfig -a
dc0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
	ether 00:14:cf:52:b4:17
	inet6 fe80::214:cfff:fe52:b417%dc0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
	inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
	media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
	status: active
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 16384
	inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
	inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x2
	inet netmask 0xff000000

And yes, it is a customized kernel. Would it be useful to attach my
config file ?
