No, there is no IPv6 support.  The mailing list archives have details.

Current CVS implements inet_pton() and inet_ntop() but these support
AF_INET only and will return -1 with errno = EAFNOSUPPORT if you try to
call them with IPv6 addresses.  This was only added recently and will
only be present in daily snapshots or a future 1.5.18+ release, however.
