Re: gentoo/wget fails during 'emerge system' (ipv6 enabled)

When ipv6 support is enabled in wget, it sets the "ip_default_family" to
AF_INET6 (host.c:84).  Unfortunately, this variable is not used merely
as a default, as its name suggests; it is used as _the_ family for the
socket.  This means if ipv6 support is enabled, only ipv6 connections
will be attempted.

Version 1.9 is the latest release, and seems to have been released
within the past couple of days.  I will create a patch.
