I forget one function declaration in mutil.h in my previous patch.

This one depend on the patch #2962

The new ipv6 implementation is more clean, I add three functions in mailbox/mutil.c to handle ipv6.
I tried to make it as simple as possible:
- a function which return a list of sockets (ipv4 or ipv6 or both) ;
- a function fo daemon to listen on incoming connections ;
- a function to get peer name.

I do not make the configure stuff for --without-ipv6, I don't know if we must have an alternative for getaddrinfo & co. because they are POSIX functions and gethostby* are marked as deprecated.

I wait you comments to continue for pop3d.
NB: diff based on CVS tree.

This patch add ipv6 capabilities to imap4d, it compile an work for me (using telnet with ipv4 and ipv6)

I do not make any change to the autoconf/automake process to test if the target machine is ipv6 capable.(I need to work on how it works).
