Syntax error also. option/option6 statements need a colon before the option-name

For OpenWrt/LEDE you can use dnsmasq-dhcp6 or dnsmasq-full. If you migrate over to LEDE and do your own builds, I have a pull on github to incorporate dnsmasq-dhcp6 into UCI when odhcpd is removed or disabled. Also LEDE dnsmasq.init script inspects the build options on dnsmasq and prevents you from trying to configure missing content. If you are concerned about stability. LEDE will be releasing 17.01 soon; my pull won't be in it, but its easy to hijack the init script from git hub.

I've realized that OSX has the same issue as a client, and so I've been trying to get this to work on LEDE/OpenWRT.  And all I'm getting from dnsmasq is grief about the opt-spec being incorrect:
The following:
yields errors about invalid options
And the following:
complains about an invalid ip address
It's v2.76.
But I see from the compile options, that IPv6 may only be partially configured:
IPv6 GNU-getopt no-DBus no-i18n no-IDN DHCP no-DHCPv6 no-Lua TFTP no-conntrack no-ipset no-auth no-DNSSEC no-ID loop-detect inotify
And so I'm guessing that with the ipv6 option, RA works, but without DHCPv6, none of the features like option6 work correctly??
