Works fine here with the binaries from python.org:

Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Apr 18 2007, 08:51:08) [MSC v.1310 32 bit
(Intel)] on win32 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for
more information.
>>> from socket import *
>>> s=socket(AF_INET6, SOCK_STREAM)
>>> s.connect(('xzrq.net', 22))
>>> s.getpeername()
('2001:470:1f02:252::2', 22, 0, 0)

Are you sure the problem is with your Python installation (why did you
recompile it, anyway?) and not the script you are using?
