After playing around with this back and forth for a while I think I found
the problem. Well, not actually the problem but a bypass to the BIND
crashes. When building any version of BIND from base autoconfigure will
enable kqueue support which seems to lead to this behaviour. I patched the
Makefiles in pkgsrc to disable kqueue and both bind95 and bind96 have now
my passed my queryperf tests that would originally let them crash within
minutes or even seconds. I will now upgrade my home server to this
kqueue-disabled version of BIND and report later. This are the patches:
