There is apparently an option when configuring MySQL to build from
source: "--enable-ipv6" but I can't find any docs on what this
configure option does.

The doc page http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/...-binaries.html
describes the configure flags used to produce the binaries provided for
download by MySQL AB. The --enable-ipv6 option is not listed, so unless
it's enabled by default, one could assume that the feature is not
enabled in the vendor-provided binaries. You'll have to build it
yourself from source.

Hi, thanx for your answer.
I've a source 5.0.19 not patched downloaded from a mirror reported by
mysql site and there is no option like --enable-ipv6..
No results from the command ./configure --help | grep ipv6
Where do you read about the --enable-ipv6 option?

I must apologize both to you and to the MySQL AB team.
I found a reference but I not read the web page carefully enough before
my report.

The site where I found this flag is:

http://www.ngn.euro6ix.org/IPv6/mysql/

It is, upon closer inspection, an unofficial patch to MySQL 4.0.18 to
handle IPv6.

Perhaps the patch can be engineered to work with the current MySQL source.
