No, the OS is not returning '::'.  We're not using PF_UNSPEC, but hard-coding 
PF_INET6.  (AF_INET6, AP_INET6, whatever the #define is.)

In alloc_listener, we're hardcoding '::' and PF_INET6 unconditionally if the 
OS supports IPv6 (as determined by find_default_family).  (See the !addr 

I have a hunch that we may be able to create ephemeral ports (NULL address 
passed in) without a configured IPv6 interface on Solaris.  Which strikes me 
as not being totally wrong on Solaris's part.

I still maintain that my patch should be applied.  Let PF_UNSPEC figure it 
out.  -- justin
