This was meant as a ITP: <source package here>

One binary will include the client, and another the server

Yes, radvd is the stateless server and the kernel has the "client" for

I don't think there is one. The sources do have a dhcp6relay.c, but
that is not compiled. The relay agent is in the TODO list. I guess the
Relay Agent should have been lowercase!
