Bug Description

Binary package hint: xinetd

The package for xinetd on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server does not come with IPv6 enabled in the compile options, thus resulting in a package without proper IPv6 support.

It is possible to fix this by adding a single line to the CFLAGS in the debian/rules-file and do a re-compile;
--with-inet6 (possibly with an trailing \ if added before "--with-libwrap").

I'd very much like to see this fixed even though it's not much of an problem it's so easy to support IPv6 in xinetd it should not be left out.

Perhaps it'd also be in place to update the documentation to reflect that adding "flags = IPv6" to any xinetd service exposes the service to both IPv4 and IPv6 while leaving it out makes the service continue as an IPv4 only service.
