Hi Ben,

I Pulled your changes and tested them out though its works for ipv4
multicast, I wonder about the size, still being generated 39 MB stripped
(full xorp)  on my  Fedora-6 with gcc 4.1.1.

I checked using git log, it is showing your all changes but 39MB size still

I may try to look in the fea code now, for removal of cli etc.

I just pushed a huge patch that conditionally compiles out much
of the IPv6 code when 'disable_ipv6=yes' is used with scons.
Full build, stripped goes from 20MB to 14MB on
my Fedora 11 64-bit system.  Still a bunch more to #ifdef HAVE_IPV6
away, I'm sure.

This was a huge patch..mucking around all over, and hasn't been tested yet,
so beware.  I'll test it soon..but have to get back to taking care of
business for a bit first.

I'll be curious to know results if anyone tries it out.
