Just a short progress report:

Ditched the ecdysis-fedora-14-x86_64-20101117.iso and went for
ecdysis-openbsd-4.6-amd64-20100226.iso on a virtual box, now
finally the NAT64 works!

On an IPv6-only host I'm now able to fetch SpamAssassin sources from SVN!
Also also the bootstraping of MIRRORED.BY works through NAT64.
Can also ssh to .

The t/dcc.t test is successful (just mutters an unnecessary warning
about a broken Razor!? )

The only test (that I know of) that is failing is Razor.
The NAT64 would provide it with a connectivity to an IPv4-only razor
server, but the razor agent perl module is unable to use an inet6 socket
and gives up, claiming that the protocol is not supported:

$ razor-admin -discover -d
  [ 5] Connecting to ...
  [ 3] Unable to connect to;
    Reason: Protocol not supported.
  [ 5] Razor Discovery Server is unreachable

All the rest seems fine, all the tests (except razor) pass,
including the long and the network tests:
