Well, what I am trying to say is that if the user goes

perl Makefile.PL -servername my.name.com
 or 
perl Makefile.PL -servername 127.0.0.1

His/Her problem will also go away.

installing Socket6 will not solve the problem, but just allow me to
detect if a problem is certain to happen.

In any case, at that point, the user will need to specify an ipv4
hostname/address.
