[fpc-pascal] Byte ordering in IP4 and IP6 addresses

If preparing an address returned by fpgetpeername() for display or 
logging, should I be using HostAddrToStr() or NetAddrToStr()?

Is anybody aware that HostAddrToStr() and HostAddrToStr6() appear to 
return addresses different ways round in 2.6.0 on Linux x86? 
NetAddrToStr() and NetAddrToStr6() appear to be consistent.
