Instead of trusting my memory, I went back and re-built the last many
versions to see what happened. 2.55 works, 2.56 (and since) doesn't. I
even tried building them all on a fresh install in a VM with the same
results. Looking at the changelog, both Solaris zones and IPv6 TFTP were
added in that version.. Yay, two targets!
