The patch seems to have broken indentation in several places.  Also,
please wrap the ifdef around the IPV6 block as well, rather than
assuming that AF_INET6 will not exist.

The duplication of some of the setup code, such as the setsockopt calls,
bugs me a bit, but I don't see an easy way to fix it.  (Tempted to
suggest using gethostbyname to provide a getaddrinfo function, but that
seems like overkill.)
