This bug is still there with 1:9.5.0.dfsg.P2-1ubuntu1. Rebuilding the
source package on an IPv6 enabled box did not fix it.

In the buildlog at http://launchpadlibrarian.net/17069359
intrepid-i386.bind9_1%3A9.5.0.dfsg.P2-1ubuntu1_FULLYBUILT.txt.gz you can

checking for sin6_scope_id in struct sockaddr_in6... yes
checking for in6_pktinfo... no -- disabling runtime ipv6 support

According to a bug filed with Gentoo this is a problem with glibc 2.8
(http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=227333). There is a patch to
configure.in filed with this bug that fixes the problem
(http://bugs.gentoo.org/attachment.cgi?id=157025). Unfortunately it
requires rerunning autotools (debian/rules autofiles), which I did not
get to work. I probably don't have all the necessary tools installed.

Bug #257909 and #259740 are most likely duplicates of this.
