Working on it.

This is blocked by missing functionality similar to project "duckwater".
Especially 'nscfg' to import and export legacy configurations. nscfg was rewritten
in python, but there is still substantial C code in the duckwater repo
with similar functionality.

Why is something like nscfg needed here?

/lib/svc/manifest/network/routing/ndp.xml will be extended with a nameserver
property (3 nameservers). When upgrading or downgrading (to the new version of in.ndpd) /etc/resolv.conf must be imported or exported.

Duckwater also contains library collecting helper functions
for interacting with services. I dont know if libresolv2 must be patched
to get the nameservers from in.ndpd service or if the nameservers
are always exported and libresolv2 gets them from /etc/resolv.conf.
