"No route to host" typically means that the routing table has trouble,
not that there's anything wrong with IP Filter.

At a guess, you may need to do this:

	ifconfig inet6 bge0 plumb up

DHCPv6 is a very different beast from IPv4 DHCP.  For one thing, it
operates entirely at the UDP level over regular IPv6 interfaces, while
IPv4 DHCP implementation typically requires special "tricks" to be able
to send and receive UDP/IP messages without having the IP interface
