Hi Florian,

Yes, It was exactly what I did.  Actually there is a macro to
determine whether we compile nf_defrag_ipv6_enable or not,
called XT_TPROXY_HAVE_IPV6, which will be set to 1 while
IP6_NF_IPTABLES=y or m.  With the patch below  we can
make the compiling pass. But I am not sure it is good enough
or not.
