[pkg-lighttpd] Bug#512583: lighttpd: simple regex is fine

Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.26-3
Severity: normal

I reported what's essentially the same bug a while ago, see 


Back then, lighttpd reported localhost addresses as "::ffff:" when 
IPv6 was enabled (you can see this in access.log). The current version reports
it as "::1". Since this is the official "canonical" loopback address, I think 
it's fine to assume it will stay at "::1" in the future. 

In other words, we don't need to play cat-and-mouse with the lighttpd devs
any more, and "^127\.0\.0\.1$|^::1$" should be sufficient.
