Actually, we can do better than this.

If you pass NI_NAMEREQD to getnameinfo(), it will return an error code of 8 
(forget the symbolic code).  The bigger problem is that server/core.c:778 
throws away the return code.  (Note that your test program doesn't pass 
that, but apr_getnameinfo does.)

We should be failing the lookups when we get an error back from 
getnameinfo().  Your test program modified to pass NI_NAMEREQD on Darwin:

% ./gni_mapped
look up via IPv4: 0/
look up via IPv6: 8/not found

I'd rather we fixed that than disable IPv6 across the board on Darwin. 
That way, when it is fixed, we don't have to do anything.  And, whenever we 
get an error from apr_getnameinfo(), we don't ignore it.  -- justin
