I'm not sure how you configure to do v4 before v6 though.
One way to do this is to edit "/etc/gai.conf". At least on lenny, it
contains the following comment:
# For sites which prefer IPv4 connections change the last line to
#precedence ::ffff:0:0/96 100
And indeed, I tried that once as a test and it worked fine -- outbound
connections preferred the IPv4 A record result over the IPv6 AAAA record
result when both were available.
