That is why drill is coming in. Problem is you can't really dump BIND without dumping the related tools, too. AFAICT they are too glued together, don't know how to say it. If you keep the parts of BIND in base that you need for the tools like host and dig there is not much difference in keeping the entire BIND distribution in base.
