By default, IPv6 support is disabled in chat/irssi

I lost many hours trying to understand why I could not connect to some servers 
or only on IPv4 for the ones which had both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
Install chat/irssi without any option set in mk.conf
The following code is present in

.if !empty(PKG_OPTIONS:Minet6)
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --enable-ipv6
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --disable-ipv6

Its logic should be reversed and the --disable-ipv6 configure arg only
used when IPv6 is explicitely disabled in mk.conf.
