This link may help you, I'm not sure, there is no ipv6 coming from 
my ISP yet. So I've not had the experience of messing with it yet.


Also, I believe there is some information concerning rp-ppoe and 
ipv6 mentioned in the man page, one of the options is listed in the 
pppd man page is pppd=ipv6 or ipv4. Would this be what you're 
looking for?
