Error binding port to ipv6 address

I didn't enabled it but maybe the debian-build made it for me without
noticing it.
Anyway it's definetely the udpfromto problem. For debugging I just
forced the define of HAVE_AF_INET6 (that it was not defined and so made
udpfromto_init return -1) and now the code works.

Or better, there is a problem but it is different.

Now I can listen on ipv6, but only on localhost. On localhost it works
(just tested with radclient).
If I tried to assign any other address (any ::, or a specific one) it
tells me that the address is already assigned and it exits. Can it be
related to udpfromto or it is another problem?

  Then disable udpfromto.  It is NOT enabled in the default build of the
server, so the only way you can run into this problem is if you enable a
non-standard feature.
