| 64"
|     ipv6_defaultrouter="fe80::213:10ff:fe79:137a"

I don't know how is above ipv6_defaultrouter setting is working, since
above is a link-local address, and you've not specified any explicit
link in above fe80::/10 address. BtW, did you recently changed your
configuration ? Is this same setting working since you started using
IPv6 on your FreeBSD host, hmm..?

| Whenever I'd try to ping6 my local router, I'd get:

|     ping6: UDP connect: Network is unreachable

Are you trying to ping6 a link-local address, without any mention of
interface, hmm...?

| Also, the routing table seemed a bit screwy and was sending everything
| to lo0:

|     $ netstat -nr -f inet6
|     [...]
|     default                           fe80::213:10ff:fe79:137a UGS
| lo0

| I found two workarounds:

|     ipv6_defaultrouter="2001:470:a80a:1::1"

I think above solution is better.
