The IPv6 option is only effective for the "leafnode" server, but does
not apply to fetchnews, which uses the old IPv4-only API.

At the moment, the quick solution would be to use leafnode-2, which is
in alpha state but works for me, its fetchnews has IPv6
support. However, you cannot mix-n-match and use only leafnode-2's
fetchnews, but you must replace the whole package. Drawback: there is on
leafnode-2 "port" for FreeBSD yet.

Is leafnode-2 an option for you?
