I have two systems, named www & guest. Both are tracking FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE, but guest is a bit more current. Neither has IPv6 explicitly enabled, but for some reason, guest insists on configuring an inet6 interface at boot time ("ifconfig xl0" shows an additional inet6 address line, not present on www).

This is causing me some aggravation, as localhost connections (such as "apachectl fullstatus") are from "[client ::1]" instead of the old-fashioned 127.0.0.1. To my surprise, <http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/network-ipv6.html> doesn't talk about rc.conf at all, and I'm not sure where else this would be set up.

Suggestions, references for further reading, or pointers to the obvious bit which I'm missing all welcomed (please CC me directly).
