curious DNS behavior on a 7.0...

reading the /etc/defaults/rc.conf, ipv6 appears disabled by default:

### IPv6 options: ###
ipv6_enable="NO"                # Set to YES to set up for IPv6.

however, right now "new" every website i browse is penalized with a 10-20 
second delay before the page finally starts loading.  tcpdump is full of 

20:38:57.915695 IP > 3505+ 
AAAA? (34)

arent AAAA's ipv6 lookups?  as i mentioned in another thread, i cant get the 
kernel to compile right now (thus eliminating the INET6 line), so im trying 
to figure another way out to stop this behavior).

any ideas would be appreciated.  cheers,
