Done. See the attached patch (apply it, then re-run and
configure). It does three things:

1. Check if --disable-ipv6 was passed to configure.
2. Check to see if struct sockaddr_in6 exists.
3. Sets a macro OMPI_WANT_IPV6 to either 0 or 1 (i.e., it's always defined
and is therefore suitable for #if, not #ifdef):
   - Set to 1 if --disable-ipv6 was not passed to configure *AND* struct
sockaddr_in6 exists
   - Set to 0 otherwise

So surround your code with:

...ipv6 stuff...

All you have to do to get this define is #include "ompi_config.h", which all
of the files should be doing already, anyway.

Let me know if this works for you.
