None of that refers to anything that is part of RT. That's a version
number for the *OBSOLETE* Perl module IO::Socket::INET6.

Nothing should be using IO::Socket::INET6. It is abandoned (note
https://bitbucket.org/shlomif/perl-io-socket-inet6/overview) and has
been superseded by IO::Socket::IP. If you can't convert whatever is
using it to use IO::Socket::IP, I guess you could upgrade to to the last
version but it would be a bit like running Windows ME: no one else uses
it *BECAUSE IT'S SHODDY*, no one cares about any bugs you might run
into, and nothing else you want to run will accommodate the quirky
exercise in inscrutable nostalgia.
