Just passing the contents of the machinefile is the way the current code
works and I think this is the most sensible solution. Any situation where
there the resolver returns IPv6 addresses, but the installed networking
software like rsh/ssh is not able to cope with them looks clearly like
an admin error to me. This is nothing that OpenMPI should try to fix.

And remember that there is always the -4 switch in ssh.
