Good to know.  Even the latest version from 
https://fedorahosted.org/dhcpv6/ doesn't seem to work. (With tcpdump I see 
the client requesting the NTP option but I don't see it in the server's 
advertisement.) I'm not surprised as the codebase is roughly 4-5 years old 
and the original author abandoned it long time ago.
