ipv4-mapped reverse lookups

For reasons unknown, some old Solaris servers are suddenly seeing connections to them as ipv4-mapped ipv6 (ie: ::ffff: )  Which is causing problems because it needs the reverse lookup to be right.

So while we struggle between spending time to investigate why or continue to try to get people to upgrade from these old forgotten servers.

Is there an easy way for me to provide reverse lookups for those?
