IPv6 problems with webkit

Hi -

one of the most popular german IT news sites (heise) has switched to
offering IPv6 which means that the DNS resolver gets an AAAA record
in its response. This made that my preferred RSS reader (liferea-current)
stopped working for that channel if used without global IPv6 connectivity.
As it turned out, this was due to a problem in libsoup which did only
try the first address returned by DNS. This was fixed in the development
branch but the fix was not pulled up to the stable 2.30 branch.
libsoup is used by webkit-gtk for IP socket things. It is likely
that other browsers using webkit-gtk (epiphany, midori) suffer as well,
but I didn't check. (It should have become apparent with other sites
providing IPv6, as NetBSDs, but I'm not sure I did check with a webkit
based browser on a v4-only network.)

An update of libsoup to the most recent one fixes the issue for me.
Since we are in a pkgsrc freeze and this is a .0 version and not
tested in other environments, I'm not committing this right now.

If anyone sees problems with one of the mentioned browsers, please
try the appended update and report.

best regards
