I don't think that many routers/OS's support IPSEC over IPv6 altough it is one the 'requirements' of IPv6. RFC2385 doesn't specify any IP restrictions though and apparently Juniper and Cisco do MD5 over IPv6, but how exactly is unclear to me... I'll try to adopt the current IPv4 patches to IPv6 as it seems to be only TCP related as they stick the md5 in the option headers of TCP...
