Add IPv6 support to dntpd
This commit allows dntpd to work with either IPv4 or IPv6 NTP servers. I added
two new command line switches (-4/-6) to force dntpd to use only v4/v6 addresses.
Thanks to sephe@ for some good hints.
Are you sure this works if the ipv6 server is unreachable? I don't think
that a connect(2) on a udp socket will find that out. You'd actually have
to connect the server to realize that something doesn't work.
Also, you could pass "ntp" instead of 123 to udp_socket/getaddrinfo.
