Yes, but I wonder if these APIs are present on all platforms on which 
net-snmp runs. For example, are they supported by Solaris?

Good! Thanks also to the fact that Masahito Omote has agreed to drop his 
INET6.pm, we can switch to Rafael's version, which will (I hope) soon be 
uploaded to CPAN, and will become the reference for IPv6 Perl 
developers. So no more confusion. :-)
