Hello list,  

when starting or restarting amavisd (I tried with amavisd-new 2.6.2 and
2.7.0) I get the following error:  

# amavisd restart
Daemon [7222] terminated by SIGTERM, waiting for dust to settle...
becoming a new daemon...
fetch_modules: error loading optional module IO/Socket/
 Attempt to reload IO/Socket/ aborted.
 Compilation failed in require at /usr/sbin/amavisd line 202.  

I the log file I see:  

amavis[6971]: INFO: no optional modules: IO::Socket::INET6  Unix::Getrusage
amavis[6972]: Module IO::Socket::INET6   ?  

IO::Socket::INET6 version is 2.56.  

Any idea how to debug this issue?
