Too bad, since on AIX, HP-UX, IRIX, MacOS X, Solaris, and Linux you
can't bind to [:::] and on the same port - you'll get an
"address already in use" error...

In any case, adding the --ipv4-only switch will fix things for
OpenBSD users. To support both IPv4 and IPv6, they'll just have to
run two copies of svnserve (assuming they don't get the same error
as on all those other OS's I mentioned...)
