My opinion:

- USE_INET6 should only exist for pkgs whichhave _very_ different behavior
  in IPv4-only and IPv6-capable modes.

- Those pkgs which can not autodetect IPv6 presence through #ifdef or
  similar things, should use a different variable (HAS_INET6?) which is set
  via detection code in

- Those pkgs which can autodetect IPv6 should compile in support whenever
  possible, regardless of USE_INET6 setting.  The code size difference, in
  every case I have seen, is negligible.
