Aprx is a Linux digipeater/I-gate daemon with a high level of configuration flexibility with regards to multiple port operation, beacons, and filtering.

> This last change for APRS-IS address selection has been a bit sticky, and may get reverted if anyone pipes up with it still causing issues on systems which don't have IPv6 connectivity but the ability to retrieve AAAA records.
