Although I didn't look at this enough to even have
a right to an opinion, it occurred to me that SPF
really does need to be able to process an IPv6 format
address to calculate SPF correctly.

Perhaps just digging up the correct .h file or the
correct structure settings is the right way to go --
it's not like SPF actually sends any network data
other than querying DNS perhaps.

But when the SPF/txt record comes back from DNS it
might have 'mechanisms' such as ip6: within it and
thus the address format for IPv6 will follow.....
