./configure --disable-ipv6 hangs

I think that I've spotted a bug in Rsync's configure script: if one
uses --disable-ipv6, configure would hang forever at step:
checking whether defines needed by getaddrinfo exist...
What happens is that when this option is used, $EGREP is not defined
in the script. Then this particular test invokes ... | $EGREP "yes".
This actually runs the Unix "yes" command because $EGREP evaluates as
Since the "yes" command never exits, it just stays there forever.
Fix: move the logic that detects the "egrep" command out of the part
that handles the enable/disable IPv6 option.
PS: reply to me directly if needed, I'm not a member of this list.
