This has nothing to do with why to enable IPv6 in APR.

Look, the IPv6 API is far superior to the standard posix IPv4 functions.
IGNORE the danged IPv6 addresses, that isn't the point!!!

To make Apache httpd speak only IPv4 is trivial.  Replace

  Listen 80

with a sensible


which tells httpd to listen only on IPv4 adapters, all of them, on their
respective port 80's.  And unless you tell it otherwise, it WON'T attempt
to listen on any IPv6 adapters.

And if IPv6 confuses you, PLEASE take a minute to look at :: syntax :)
