amavisd failing to connect to ::1

I am not receiving any emails for couple of weeks because of the following error in amavisd startup -

Dec  1 20:26:40 host amavis[1300]: starting. /usr/sbin/amavisd at host amavisd-new-2.9.1 (20140627), Unicode aware
Dec  1 20:26:40 host amavis[1301]: (!)Net::Server: 2014/12/01-20:26:40 Can't connect to TCP port 10024 on ::1 [Cannot assign requested address]\n  at line 68 in file /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Net/Server/Proto/

The server has been configured not to have ipv6, which has not changed for a while. Nor is 10024 used any anyone else. Assuming that if I disable ipv6 loopback for amavisd this will go away,  how can I "tell" amavisd to not do any ipv6 loopback connection at all and just listen on ipv4 only ?
