For those on NetBSD, this change (together with the previous ones) should not have any effect. For those on systems that don't define USE_INET6, if you put inet6 in default options, you should also see no changes (but you can remove it). If you didn't have inet6 in default options, most packages will build for IPv6, and not supporting or wanting IPv6 will be treated as exceptional.

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@.)
