Summary0003958: ./Config does not forward --enable-inet6 parameter to configure process
DescriptionThere is a HOT new issue with CVS regarding IPv6, I realize it cannot bind stream sockets to IPv6 addresses anymore, while this worked fine with IPv6 was select during ./Config. I am adding log entries:

[Wed Sep 8 16:02:49 2010] - setsockopt(IP_OPTIONS)[]:Invalid argument
[Wed Sep 8 16:02:49 2010] - Error binding stream socket to IP 2001.0.0.0 port 7100 -[]:Can't assign requested address
[Wed Sep 8 16:03:51 2010] - setsockopt(IP_OPTIONS)[]:Invalid argument
[Wed Sep 8 16:03:51 2010] - Error binding stream socket to IP 2001.0.0.0 port 7100 -[]:Can't assign requested address

While double-checking the ./configure progress I realize that eventhough IPv6 was enabled by default, --enable-inet6 was not added to the configure parameters (!). Adding it to the extra parameters in ./Config fixes the issue and IPv6 is compiled in properly.

ziplinks are not affected by this bug. I haven't tested remote includes.

I think I misread, try reverting this patch (for ./Config), and see if it solves things:;r2=

Hm, yeah, that must be the issue, fixed in .878:
- Reverted an IPv6/Config fix I did on July 17. Reported by chotaire (0003958).

syzop: Not directly pertaining to this bug, but this issue and similar ones could be avoided if the code looked like:

if [ "$INET6" = "1" ]; then
    ARG="$ARG--enable-inet6 "
    ARG="$ARG--disable-inet6 "

May I change ./Config to do this for all ./configure options?

Why would we want to add X options when they have no effect? :P
Actually it was all working ok, until you decided to set different defaults...

Perhaps another time, but not now.
