 Yeah well, it was my "broken configuration" (Matthias Scheler) userland. 
 ( in response to -- a problem which
  still exists but given the rest of the thread you're not really interested
  in hearing about it anyways).
 I now could rant on how it sucks that lack of IPv6 breaks IPv4,
 how use of a plain build system variable renders your system unusable,
 how IPv6 is forced upon all of us like the federal surveillance and
 how the ugly ipv6 warts now sprout all over my system but well...
 Sorry for the noise. If you wanna make something sensible out of this
 PR, change it to mean "Remove MKINET6 and USE_INET6 from the system as
 their use will break it"
 Hail IPV6!
