This is pretty hard to do in some configurations. You essentially have to do
this at the router, not at destination.

Recent IETF work on link-local has used TTL=255 outgoing, and it has to be 255
at the receive end too. That is a reasonable way to ensure that is is
link-local, since even the most brain-dead routers will at least decrement
TTL.
