Disable IPV6 on trunk?

Been following a process for a while which has worked in the past... now if I disable
Base system > busybox > Networking Utilities > Enable IPv6 support
which in turn disables Libraries > Firewall > libip6tc

I get this;

Package libiptc is missing dependencies for the following libraries:

And consequently iptables fails to build...

Is it currently not possible to compile packages without IPV6 support built in?

Can't you select/deselect libiptc6 individually here:

It's there but cannot be toggled.

There is always the .config file

doesn't work; still fails to compile due to the above dependency error


The issue seems to be a recent change made to "build packages without IPV6" option; before you could build iptables with its libip6tc dependency in place even though the option to build packages without support for ipv6 was in place. As of recent however, the option to build packages without IPV6 now also removes libip6tc dependency for iptables/firewall and consequently it fails to build.
