Leaving privoxy aside, it seems like you are trying to make your tor
client listen to the IPv6 localhost address. This is not necessary in
order to access an IPv6 resource on the internet.

I would recommend using the Tor Browser instead.

Leaving privoxy aside, you will have to add the 'IPv6Traffic' flag to
your SocksPort line in torrc in order for your tor client to ask exits
for IPv6 addresses. Note that you will have to talk SOCKS5 to your tor
client in order for this to work. Here is an example of how to do that:

  $ curl -v -A '' -x socks5:// https://ipv6.google.com/

You might want the 'PreferIPv6' flag too. See the fine manual.
