	PR 9371 talks about it.  This is because:
	- SSH IPv6 patch now uses get{addr,name}info, not gethostby{name,addr},
	  to query hostnames
	- SOCKS is unable to socks-ify them

	There are possible short-term solutions about it:
	- make security/ssh6 for certain period of time
		NOTE: I have been told that use of different set of patches
		in single pkgsrc (based on USE_foo) is too complicated and
		should be avoided
	- any others?
	This one is rather long-term, or need more work:
	- add sock-ify support for get{addr,name}info into SOCKS

	Not sure which is the way to go.
