the patch at http://people.freebsd.org/~bz/20110530-03-FF-pc-netmanager-v6-autoconf.diff
attempts to make the checkbox and manual IPv6 address usable.
It's still weird for manual configuration that the default gateway is
in the advanced tab rather than here.

- convert to new rc.conf syntax ifconfig_IF_ipv6 rather than deprecated ipv6_ifconfig_IF.
- make sure to prepend "inet6 " when writing user input out if not there.
- allow "Apply" button to work.
- enable accepting RAs for SLAAC to work when on "autoconfig".

         Stop bit received. Insert coin for new address family.
