At the moment I'm not sure why that apr_sockaddr_info_get() is
there.  It looks a little mysterious to me, but I haven't looked into

As for why getaddrinfo() is hanging...  It shouldn't do that :)  Are
there some resolver timeouts you can set on the system?  There isn't a
WAIT_FOREVER flag to getaddrinfo(), so that is a Sun question :(

Back to reality, where we need to deal with this:

1) If you want to experiment with what might work around the
problem...  You could replace APR_UNSPEC in ap_mpm_pod_check() with
AF_INET and see if that avoids the apparent WAIT_FOREVER path in the

2) Maybe Jeff needs to learn about that particular
   apr_sockaddr_info_get() call to see if it could be changed. For
   now, I dunno.


For better or worse, some months back APR decoupled the choice of
using getaddrinfo() from the choice of enabling IPv6 support, so
--disable-ipv6 doesn't switch us to the older, better-understood
resolver logic.
