rpm do not support ipv6 on RHEL6.5

Clone to RPM since "rpm -ivh http://[$ipv6_addr]/pakcage_name.rpm" failed but curl support IPv6
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1075844 +++
Description of problem:
curl do not support ipv6 on RHEL6.5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# curl -V
curl 7.19.7 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.19.7 NSS/22.214.171.124 zlib/1.2.3 libidn/1.18 libssh2/1.4.2
Protocols: tftp ftp telnet dict ldap ldaps http file https ftps scp sftp
Features: GSS-Negotiate IDN IPv6 Largefile NTLM SSL libz
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # curl -v -6 http://[2001::1]/
curl: (3) [globbing] error: bad range specification after pos 9
get the html from ipv6 host
rpm use curl to get packages from server, so it will fail if we usr "rpm -ivh http://[$ipv6_addr]/pakcage_name.rpm".
BTW, wget works well.
# wget http://[2001::1]/packages/

Connecting to 2001::1:80... connected.

You need to use the -g/--globoff option. Please read the FAQ:
Okay so curl needs --globoff to work with raw ipv6 addresses.
Severity high this is not.
