Description Timo Teräs 2014-07-14 08:51:32 UTC
The autoconfigure tests for IPv6 relies on C-library internals, and it currently fails for musl c-library based linux. For Alpine Linux bug report see http://bugs.alpinelinux.org/issues/3158.

A better test (and non-OS dependent) would be to try creating AF_INET6 socket, if it succeeds, then IPv6 is supported.

See e.g.:
 http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-release-6/src/crypto/dist/ipsec-tools/configure.ac (and search for --disable-ipv6)
