OK, thanks.

I've not seen a system without IPv6 for several years. Certainly didn't
check that when building the images.

The whole idea with the Docker images is you provide your own config -
the default one won't be of much use to many people. So this really is
"if you run without IPv6, use a FreeRADIUS config without IPv6".
