rsync: failed to connect to 2a01:4f8:131:13c2:6e62:6dff:fe76:2d5a (2a01:4f8:131:13c2:6e62:6dff:fe76:2d5a): Network is unreachable (101)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(122) [Receiver=3.0.9]

You can force portage/rsync to use only IPv6 by adding

PORTAGE_RSYNC_EXTRA_OPTS="-6"

to your make.conf

I have used -4 to force IPv4 on my system.
