[New-bugs-announce] [issue16836] configure script disables support for IPv6 on a system where IPv6 is disabled

New submission from Ralf Schmitt:
The configure script uses a runtime check to determine if IPv6 is working. If IPv6 is disabled system-wide via a kernel option on linux, the resulting python interpreter is compiled as if "--disable-ipv6" had been passed to the configure script.
This causes multiple issues:
Both of the above issues have been closed as wontfix, and I have been told to not use --disable-ipv6 and instead disable IPv6 system wide via a boot option. This is what I did, and now I have the same issue because the configure script has this runtime check...
