[distcc] distcc only listens on v6 with --enable-rfc2553?

The intention is that it listens on a wildcard address which will
accept connections from either IPv4 or IPv6 addresses, where IPv4
addresses are presented as ip6-mapped.  So if you build with rfc2553
you should be able to accept either protocol by default.  

Are your connections from IPv4 not getting through?

It works on Linux.  If it doesn't work on NetBSD I think it is a
NetBSD bug, but maybe I just misunderstood the interface.
