Just reading through all this again whilst looking at the source code
for 1.3.3 as well, and I think what Aleskej was getting at was that
there's already a block of:
#if defined( __NetBSD__) || defined(__OpenBSD__) || defined(__FreeBSD__) || \
defined(__386BSD__) || defined(__bsdi__) || defined(__APPLE__)
in there for the IPv6 (inet6) interfaces but NOT for the IPv4 (inet)
Indeed, the IPv6 stuff (the #if OPAL_WANT_IPV6 block) seems to be broken
and the 6 OSes above.
There would seem to be no such distinction for the IPv4 interface block.
