Description Pekka Savola 2002-12-18 11:47:19 EST
In #49621 and like, hacks were added to xinetd (build two versions), because
xinetd offered only on/off compile-time IPv6 support.

In 2.3.7 it has been improved, and can be controlled by "flags = IPv6" and the like.


 1) now identical xinetd-ipv6 binary can be removed and the build process
cleaned up a bit
 2) init.d/xinetd can be cleaned up a bit, like:

diff -uN xinetd~ xinetd
