It should not be. At all. However I think I have this fixed now :
charon$ /usr/bin/time -p wget
Resolving ftp.gnu.org (ftp.gnu.org)... 188.8.131.52, 2001:4830:134:3::b

So previously that would take four minutes while the ipv6 dns data
failed over and over.
I modified /etc/sysctl.conf also :
charon$ grep -v "^#" /etc/sysctl.conf | grep -v "^$"
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv4.conf.all.accept_redirects = 0
net.ipv4.conf.all.send_redirects = 0
net.ipv4.conf.all.accept_source_route = 0
That seems to have settled down the situation.
yay ... I can finally fetch kernel sources and try a build.
Thank you for your insights and input and just plain patience.
