some months net/netcat6 was [1]changed to require `inet6' because
(according to the CVS log message) "you *can't* disable IPv6 in

However, netcat6 works fine without IPv6; I just built it (`./configure
--disable-ipv6') on a NetBSD 3.1_STABLE system which was built with
MKINET6=no and runs a kernel without `options INET6'.

IMHO net/netcat6/ should be reverted to rev 1.1. Any comments?
