The problem here is that the current approach breaks HP-UX.

The question is whether xtrans should work in both kind of environments
-- in that case the using package is responsible for building it with
either IPv6 support or without. The other option is to make xtrans get a
--enable-inet6 / --disable-inet6 option and conditionally patch a macro
into Xtranssock.c.
