We have fixed a bunch problems like this in the development stream. You 
should try picking up the latest development version and build that.

People make the mistake of thinking that turning off IPv6 support will 
fix build problems relating to IPv6. That's a mistaken assumption. It 
won't. It has nothing to do with whether or not you have an IPv6 stack.

You're missing the fact that you need the IPv6 structures in there even 
if you don't have IPv5 enabled.
