you could try to use one of your boards as a sniffer, see [1]. So you can check if you see 
Router Solicitations (RS) by RIOT nodes and hopefully Router Advertisements (RA) from your
RasPi. RIOT needs RAs to (auto) configure its IPv6 interfaces with addresses, there is no
DHCP client on RIOT (yet). 

Thus, if odhcpd does not send RAs or if it does, these RAs may contain options RIOT does not
except (e.g., as Kaspar already said on-link flag must not be set), in all cases auto-conf
may fail in RIOT.
