Currently OpenRC does not have any support for DHCPv6 - this could trivially be implemented for the ISC suite simply by copying the existing dhclient script to dhclient6 and passing "-6" to the binary, but perhaps a member of the OpenRC team would prefer to make the script operate in a dual-stack manner.
Of course, recent iterations of busybox also support DHCPv6 but I personally haven't tried it, I currently utilise the method described in the aforementioned paragraph.
I also believe (I haven't confirmed this yet) that dhcpcd is working
twoard dhcpv6 support.
Well currently for my dual stack configuration i have following.
in /etc/init.d i have created symbolic dhcp6 link to dhcp. In /etc/conf.d i copied dhcp to dhcp6 and added -6 to DHCPD_OPTS and created seperate dhcp6.conf in /etc/dhcp works like a charm... I read somewhere this is suggested way of doing it...
also obviously i added dhcp6 to run level default so it runs on boot :)

Add support for DHCPv6 via dhclient
Here's a patch that I created a few months ago that adds dhcpv6 support via dhclient (net-misc/dhcp client).
Looks good, committed in Git to branch bug450326. I would like testers due to the changes in iproute+ifconfig modules, and then we can merge it next week.
Looks like this has never been merged to master?
