In the pfSense project (FreeBSD) we use ISC dhcpd, we have a seperate 
monitor process for the dhcpd6.leases.


This fires off a PHP script that inserts or removes the routes as 
required. This works pretty well.


You could rewrite the PHP script in a multitude of languages, but that's 
what we use exclusively on pfSense. Bar a few C programs ofcourse, but 
that has to do with memory footprint
