Most probably I was not quite clear in the description of the situation.
Cabal does not require ping6. It was me trying to resolve the problem who
tried ping and ping6, not cabal. And I found that all hosts on the machine
are accessible only through IPv6.
Cabal internally uses IPv4 calls/data structures, it seems. And fails.
A proposition: is it even remotely good idea to replace in cabal source
code all calls to web API to invocation of curl/wget?
