 I'm _fairly_ sure it should not need a kernel config change to _build_ it.
 To use it, yes the kernel will obviously need it turned on, but the build
 is just using the headers - primarily from glibc.  As I said, I eventually
 managed to build 4.0.0 earleir today by adding a define to the configure,
 so I don't think the system's headers are _too_ broken for 4.1.0 to use

 As to a definitive answer, I've no idea - google is a bit silent on it.
 Like you, I have no way to test or use ipv6, but I'm using older versions
 of the package to issue / claim addresses for my desktop boxes.
