you first have to rebuild the toolchain to include IPv6 support. the uClibc config needs to have UCLIBC_HAS_IPV6 enabled.
after that, enable IPv6 in your kernel under the network settings, and then "simply" configure your userspace. most likely you'll want to start with static IPs/routes before moving onto automatic configuration as the latter will be fairly site-specific. these steps though will be the same across all Linux systems and not specific to Blackfin builds in any way.
i dont think any of the current DHCP clients in the uclinux-dist support DHCPv6, so you'll probably need to use an upstream package and cross-compile it yourself.
if you're not familiar with configuring IPv6 under Linux already, then you probably should do some googling+reading first. hurricane electric has quite a bit of good primer information already:
