Fix following the current openssh style.

$ /usr/bin/ssh -g -L 5000:localhost:22 localhost cat
bind: Address already in use
[... running]
# netstat -apn|grep 5000
tcp  0  0*  LISTEN  23526/ssh
$ telnet localhost6 5000
Trying ::1...
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused


$ ./ssh -g -L 5000:localhost:22 localhost cat
[... running]
# netstat -apn|grep 5000
tcp  0  0*  LISTEN  23139/ssh
tcp  0  0  :::5000       :::*       LISTEN  23139/ssh
$ telnet localhost6 5000
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost6.
Escape character is '^]'.

Using Fedora 11 kernel with its (+AFAIK upstream) defaults:
# cat /proc/version 
Linux version
(mockbuild at xenbuilder4.fedora.phx.redhat.com) (gcc version 4.4.1
20090725 (Red Hat 4.4.1-2) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Thu Aug 27 21:39:52 EDT 2009
# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv6/bindv6only

In the current case one cannot access IPv6 because the IPv4 socket was
created first.  If IPv6 would be created first it would work.

The copy-pasted code could be probably moved to some unified function. 
This is out of scope of this patch.

Similiar problem+resolution was in Bug 164, Bug 1309 and Bug 1392.
