Sorry, didn't mean to be ambiguous.

Freenet6 is what I was intending ( or actually gogoc ) for packaging.

Just to clarify: the anomaly is in the gogoc prog, it presumes the radvd 
usr & dir exist.

To expand on the anomaly, Radvd does not create a usr for itself or a 
run dir under var. OK no biggie.
Gogoc presumes these *do* exist and makes no checks to verify them.

This is only applicable if you're attempting to run gogoc as a router.

e-credibility: the non-guaranteeable likelihood that the electronic data
you're seeing is genuine rather than somebody's made-up crap.
