You are missing the point, you installed IPv6 on this machine.  You did not
configure an interface.

Either; 1) install IPv4 layer only, and you have nothing more to do, or...
2) install an IPv6 loopback device, to complete the installation of IPv6.

If you build for IPv6, the ./testall cannot report success without validating
certain exception conditions which vary from platform to platform, and as-yet
undiscovered flaws on future platform/releases.

If you want to have an apr which doesn't test or validate ipv6, you can do so;

  ./configure --disable-ipv6

If you are concerned that IPv6 networking components are installed by Solaris
without configuring a loopback endpoint, contact Sun.

If you are concerned that we should pass these tests for IPv6 in spite of this
misconfiguration, it would stand to reason that we would have to give a pass to
any misconfigured IPv4-only machine as well.  The purpose of the test suite is
to validate all enabled apr interfaces, so the first half of this bug report
was 'FIXED', the second half (and current title) is INVALID.
