Well, yes I believe there are still traces in the code and possibly configure
script from back when c-ares didn't handle IPv6.
But, as got painfully obvious when Debian started building curl with c-ares,
libcurl has ipv6-related problems when c-ares is used and c-ares itself
seems to have some ipv6-related problems left.
I don't have any kind of ipv6 setup myself so I've not personally given these
problems a lot of attention.
