    Add IPv6 support to dntpd
    This commit allows dntpd to work with either IPv4 or IPv6 NTP servers.  I added
    two new command line switches (-4/-6) to force dntpd to use only v4/v6 addresses.
    Thanks to sephe@ for some good hints.
Are you sure this works if the ipv6 server is unreachable?  I don't think 
that a connect(2) on a udp socket will find that out.  You'd actually have 
to connect the server to realize that something doesn't work.

Also, you could pass "ntp" instead of 123 to udp_socket/getaddrinfo.
