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.
