If you do want an assigned prefix, or real connectivity and not want
to set up a (static) tunnel it may be possible to use 6to4 if your
router is not behind NAT. See
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/IPv6Guide#Tunnel_Configuration.

I did not test this myself (in Fedora), and 6to4 tends to be a bit
flaky (in general) so ymmv.
