No problem, just two hours ago, Christian and me decided to drop
the idea of oob/tcp6 and go on with only one oob-tcp-component.

It shouldn't be that hard and I'll try it tonight or tomorrow.

Yes. At least that's what I try to code ;)

That's good. Just check for struct sockaddr_in6 and add
-DIPV6 to the CFLAGS. This flag is currently needed by
opal/util/if.* and orte/mca/oob/tcp/*, so one might limit
it to the two corresponding makefiles.

We can also set/define IPV6 in something_config.h.
It'd also be a good idea to have a --disable-ipv6 configure flag.
