At least on PARISC, this turned out to be an glibc issue. With the latest
glibc from debian unstable, ping6 is now working OK:
# ping6 -n www.kame.net
PING www.kame.net(3ffe:501:4819:2000:203:47ff:fea5:3257) from
3ffe:400:470:4:a00:9ff:fe17:ca3d : 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 3ffe:501:4819:2000:203:47ff:fea5:3257: icmp_seq=1 ttl=53
64 bytes from 3ffe:501:4819:2000:203:47ff:fea5:3257: icmp_seq=2 ttl=53
