Does this mean that we now have a live CD that contains BIND from pkgsrc
(and so has host, dig, nslookup, etc) _and_ the lnds/drill tools? The
whole point of Jan's work was making it so we have less third-party code
to update in base, I thought.
My understanding is that nobody should be without the normal BIND tools -
they'll just be from the pkgsrc package. It would come on the CD/DVD. If
you happened to have an older (2.5 -> 2.7) system that was upgraded to
remove BIND, it's fixable with 'pkg_radd bind96', rather than needing
these additional tools. Someone correct me if I'm not describing reality.
