So, re-testing with 9.0 amd64/i386 in vagrant

NetBSD 64 / amd64 works:

netbsd-9$ src/openvpn/openvpn --show-gateway 
2020-09-13 11:36:09 ROUTE_GATEWAY 10.0.2.2/255.255.255.0 IFACE=wm0 HWADDR=08:00:27:a0:47:f1
2020-09-13 11:36:09 ROUTE6_GATEWAY fe80::1 IFACE=wm1

(NOTE: if there is no IPv6 gateway, it will report the "problem writing to routing socket" as well - so the message could certainly improved)

NetBSD 9.0 / i386 never works:

netbsd-9i$ sudo route add -inet6 ::/0 fe80::1%wm1
add net ::/0: gateway fe80::1%wm1
netbsd-9i$ src/openvpn/openvpn --show-gateway
2020-09-13 11:55:46 GDG6: problem writing to routing socket
2020-09-13 11:55:46 ROUTE_GATEWAY 10.0.2.2
netbsd-9i$ src/openvpn/openvpn --show-gateway ::1
2020-09-13 11:55:50 GDG6: problem writing to routing socket
2020-09-13 11:55:50 ROUTE_GATEWAY 10.0.2.2

"route get -inet6 ::" works, though

   route to: ::
destination: ::
       mask: default
    gateway: fe80::1%wm1
 local addr: fe80::73d3:268b:db02:3445%wm1
  interface: wm1

so this is something on our code. Possibly 32/64 bit ABI/API mismatch (like MacOS).

Yah. "long" vs. "uint64_t"... so happened to work on amd64 (sizeof(long)=8), stopped working on i386 when this was increased. Use RT_ROUNDUP() from <net/route.h>

Fix --show-gateway for IPv6 on NetBSD/i386.
