It's unlikely. I've sent numerous messages and created some PRs stating
that software uses the presence of ipv6 related defined constants as
indication that ipv6 actually is present and that it's safe to assume
that you can build and lateron run ipv6 related code on NetBSD.
MKINET6=no/USE_INET6=no is not supported. See e.g. PR 39603 for what
dragons are waiting out there to fry you. 39605 also comes from a time
where I tried to live with ipv6. I'm still not using a bit of it. I
still don't love it as der Mouse [iirc] suggested I should learn to. 

So to really play sane, don't you dare switch off ipv6!
