Sorry for the top post earlier.  I've eliminated the second IP address on
the inet6 ifconfig command, and prefixlen 126 is accepted.  Now I just get
no ping replies accross the gif0 interface.  ifconfig shows all the correct
information, and netstat -rn shows valid routes.  What am I missing?  I
*did* have this working at one time this morning, but I tried to get things
into rc.conf and haven't been able to get it back up.
