I had a yell of a time getting all the dependencies met when I built
this 5.2 system.

I would love to do this. Right now you have to run HIPL in userspace,
because of the ipsec BEET mode issue. I need to find time to get the
patch to the 2.6.18 kernel working, and then to keep it current...

gFTP has an option to use scp (or whatever the file transfer over SSH is
called). It works just fine over IPv4 as a nice GUI tool to an SSHD. But
it just crashes when you run it over IPv6. I would really like to have a
GUI for SSH file transfers over IPv6.

Count me in. I have LOTS that is not working. Also such joys as ignoring
TTLs and keeping dns resolutions cached (which kills testing native IPv6
to the app over HIP).
One thing I am working with is a 'test' IPv6 dns domain. I now have the
pieces to bring up a copy of BIND on a system that will be a caching
server for the test system and provide a .test TLD for working out

I build new RPMs fairly regularly (the HIPL project uses TLA for getting
the source). Right now I have them on my local repo.
