Log Message:
Drop USE_INET6 => inet6 option binding.

For a long time, the norm in pkgsrc was that packages had an option
for IPv6 support "inet6", and this was not in PKG_SUGGESTED_OPTIONS.
On NetBSD (and probably other BSD), USE_INET6 was defined in system mk
files, and pkgsrc noticed this and enabled the inet6 option globally.
But, in some environments, this did not happen.

The inet6 option has been added to PKG_SUGGESTED_OPTIONS for almost
all packages.  This change decouples IPv6 support in pkgsrc from the
base system.

People building on systems that do not support IPv6, or who do not
want IPv6 support in packages, can add

  PKG_DEFAULT_OPTIONS+=         -inet6

to mk.conf.

(Discussed for the last week on various lists, and ok wiz@.)
