Optionally, depending on this sysctl set to zero in -current: net.inet6.ip6.bindv6only 
Default it is set to one meaning AF_INET6 sockets work with IPv6 only.
This violates the standard a bit, but is the more reasonable choice as
following the standard gives more potential interoperability problems.
