We used to, but having more knobs than we want, we got rid of it.   
However, the configure script can sets the flag automatically  
depending on whether it thinks that the system has sufficient support  
for IPv6.  Check in include/autoconf.h in your build tree to see if  
KRB5_USE_INET6 is defined.  Problem is, as I indicated in my email  
from the 26th, there may be places where we haven't properly  
conditionalized things.

These would still be problems if we had the configure-time option,  
because we aren't testing on any systems currently that don't have  
IPv6 support (at least at compile time), so the code would still  
compile, properly conditionalized or not.
