Does wget-1.9.1 work with --enable-ipv6 option on NetBSD?
The option should be enabled by default?
Recently I've noticed that wget-1.9.1nb3 didn't work even
for IPv4 HTTP acquisition. My kernel is 1.6.2 and IPv6

When I disabled it as '--disable-ipv6', the problem has gone.
With --enable-ipv6, I found that the following connect() in
connect.c failed and errno became EINVAL (22). The given
ctx->addr seemed IPv4-mapped address.

According to http://orange.kame.net/dev/cvsweb.cgi/kame/kame/kame/v6test/conf/transition-abuse.conf?rev=1.22,
the current NetBSD kernel does not allow IPv4-mapped address
Does the problem occur on my kernel configuration only?
