One of the first things I would check would be whether the source code
makes calls to gethostbyname(), or if it makes calls to getaddrinfo().
Calls to getaddrinfo() would be a necessary (generally) but not
sufficient condition for IPv6 support.
Next I would see if the source uses something like sockaddr_storage
instead of sockaddr_in, the former being a positive IPv6-capable indication.
