I believe there's no standard place for libinet6.a, we do something
like this until IPv6 is merged into all UNIXes. Sad thing is that

It really depend on TCP implementation in that stack. There are
several stacks exist. I think it is safer to do add_port() for both
ones (AF_INET6 and AF_INET), than assume that AF_INET6 will do the
