nscd cacher problem

Unfortunately, enabling or disabling IPV6 doesn't seem to have
much to do with the library doing V6 DNS lookups. I could
swear there was something added to nsswitch.conf or resolv.conf
that you could set to disable v6 dns requests, but I can't
remember what it was called.

I run bind as a caching nameserver, forwarding lookups to my
ISP's server and set the -4 option on the command line to
make it stick to ipv4 and all my DNS lookup problems vanished.
