    You can try the IPv6 net-tools. I have an updated version available from

    ftp://kc.london.uk.eu.org/pub/net-tools-inet6-970215.tar.gz

    They _ought_ to work on IPv4 only machines, and I believe they support the
    new statistics correctly (and compile under glibc). I'd be interested to
    hear of success or failure reports.
