This issue is not limited to gif interfaces...
I've had this exact same problem on ALL of my FreeBSD hosts for, well,
No matter what I've tried, if a box reboots, I must manually enter in
the default IPv6 router.
Even on IPv6-only hosts, the default gateway does not take upon reboot.
I'm up for figuring this issue out today, if nobody else has a solution
Let me know. If you're interested, I'll fire up a couple of hosts that
we can use and just continuously reboot if necessary :)
