The above proposal is just fine, except tricky situation with
"latest pkgsrc on 1.4 branch" - some of packages bark if there's no
getaddrinfo(3). Anyway we should sort it out, by fixing original
Is it correct that you are saying binary package builders/people
compile packages need to set HAS_INET6 in mk.conf, if they are working
on 1.5? Or will it be automatically defined by bsd.pkg.mk trick?
(like exit status from "ifconfig lo0 inet6")
