I file this on Squeeze version as this bug has been present for a long time.

However, for some odd reason (maybe related to freebsd-utils update?) this
has begun breaking Debian GNU/kFreeBSD installs.

On a pure IPv4 network with no IPv6 routing, GNU wget obtains IPv6 address
from host, and since it's unusable it falls back to IPv4 one:

	$ LANG=C wget http://ftp.nl.debian.org/ -O /dev/null
	--2012-02-04 15:21:01--  http://ftp.nl.debian.org/
	Resolving ftp.nl.debian.org (ftp.nl.debian.org)... 2001:610:1908:a000::149:21, 130.89.149.21

	2012-02-04 15:21:02 (49.1 KB/s) - `/dev/null' saved [5929]

Buxybox wget, however, stops here and fails:

	$ busybox wget http://ftp.nl.debian.org/ -O /dev/null
	Connecting to ftp.nl.debian.org ([2001:610:1908:a000::149:21]:80)
	wget: can't connect to remote host: No route to host

I'm unsure why this didn't break D-I before.
