getaddrinfo() has nothing to do with IPv6, and netinet/ip6.h isn't
included anywhere, so why check for it?

I believe we would need to check for a combination of

struct sockaddr_in6

Then again, it might be simpler to make it a configure option
(--enable-ipv6) and just assume all those things exist.  Over time the
interfaces might stabilize.

However, even when IPv6 support is compiled in, we still need some
run-time control about whether it should get activated because the
presence of the programming interfaces doesn't tell you anything about
whether the run-time environment supports it.
