>Description:
The proxy module of chat/irssi fails with "Protocol not supported" when trying to set the port the proxy should listen on when it is compiled with the inet6 option.

It seems this problem is related to PR pkg/23430.

I do have a kernel without inet6 running, it is untested whether the problem still occurs when using an inet6-enabled kernel. However most programs seem to run fine on non-inet6 kernels with inet6 support in themselves enabled.


>How-To-Repeat:
run irssi
/load proxy
/set irssiproxy_ports IRCnet=49153
>Fix:
Disable the inet6 option and recompile

Fixes simmilar to PR pkg/23430 should be the better way.
