Tried some more.
Using the patch from
I can build dhclient 4.2.0 and run it on ppp0.

I run it like:
./dhclient -6 -P -d -v ppp0

I see the client do IA_PD etc and also see a message status code Success.

But where does the PD go?
Does the client store the Prefix?
Assign it to an interface?

I did not find a race of such action.

Can someone please shine a light on this?

Kind regards,
