Well, I did use _OPSYS_HAS_INET6 at first in the sipcalc package, but that
seemed even clunkier because it is accessing _-prefixed variables (and does
not change behavior if the user explicitly requested omission of IPv6
support). USE_INET6 is deprecated, too, in favor of the "inet6" option.

Ideally, yes. If the user requested omission of IPv6 support on a global
basis, packages that require IPv6 support should indeed fail.
