Does it work if you try to run the server built for IPv4?  If not then
this looks to me like your software isn't installed correctly on the server.
Make sure that you have copied your entire baseq2 directory from you
original QuakeII CD into the same directory as quake2 and then make sure you
are in that directory when you start the game.

I haven't done much with the IPv6 code other than insure that it compiles...
