ipv6 should be enabled by default

WRL 7 RPCL 11. I am trying to start SNMPD for both IPV4 and IPV6 using your software. This did work in version 4.3 of your product. My development system and the target have both the IPV4 and IPV6 TCP/IP stacks running and I can ping6 both directions. When I try to start SNMPD to listing on udp6:161 the startup fails with Error opening specified endpoint "udp6:[::1]:161". If I comment out the udp6 stuff SNMPD will start just fine and I can walk the mibs etc... 

 SNMPD was not being build with IPv6 enabled.  I created ~net-snmp/net-snmp_5.7.2.1.bbappend with:

EXTRA_OECONF += "--enable-ipv6"

Steps to Reproduce

wrlinux/configure --enable-board=mpc8308-rdb --enable-build=production --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=glibc_std --with-layer=/Projects/Evergreen/kernel/layer/meta-D3,/Projects/Evergreen/kernel/layer/meta-common --enable-unsupported-config=yes --enable-reconfig --enable-internet-download=yes --enable-buildhist=yes --with-rcpl-version=0011
