Hmmm....   I also see them declared as extern, but I can't find which 
library has the definitions.  This is in OpenSuSE 11.1.  Like I said, I 
don't know much about autoconf, but if you ever did figure out  how to do 
it, the ideal would be to use its feature of attempting a little 
compilation including those symbols, and if it linked then tne default 
would be HAVE_IPv6 (or ENABLE_IPv6?) = 1, otherwise 0.  But sorry, I don't 
know enough about autoconf to make this happen.
