I'm not sure. CURL_IPRESOLVE_V4 is documented to force the connection
to IPv4. That is, it'll ignore IPv6 addresses altogether, rather than
try to connect and then fail over within curl. What happens if you
add a "-4" to the command line above? That sets CURL_IPRESOLVE_V4.
Also, going back to the original problem, can you send me the output
when you try fetching a key with "--keyserver-options debug" set?
