i don't know where to start with this... but IPSocket#addr is broken on
IRIX64...

i gives this error

  getnameinfo: memory allocation failure

the extconf.rb in ext/socket/socket.rb does not deal with $ipv6 correctly
(it is false) but when it is set to true extconf.rb DOES give this error


  Fatal: --enable-ipv6 is specified, and your OS seems to support IPv6 feature.
  But your getaddrinfo() and getnameinfo() are appeared to be broken.  Sorry,
  you cannot compile IPv6 socket classes with broken these functions.

this appears to be due to the lack of

   struct addrinfo hints

on IRIX64 - or at least the inability of configure to find it...

can anyone help with this?

is there a work around?
