Yes, it tells the (module tools?  initscripts?) that to install the ipv6 
module, you just run /bin/true.  And naturally you get a happy return code 
from that ;-)

I once managed to leave in /etc/resolv.conf a static DNS cache from here on a 
machine I then took elsewhere.  I was puzzled it was slow and it was puzzled 
as to why I was telling it to look at for DNS :-)  Hence I 
suggest looking with tcpdump at what goes on at the wire when you are doing a 
DNS lookup. stuck out like a sore thumb when I did this.  You 
might as well turn off ipv6 anyway, but if it is trying to talk ipv6 that 
will also stick out like a sore thumb.  tcpdump is very very useful.
