This patching and maintenance is already done as part of pkgsrc; it's a
big help to us (as in DragonFly) to have that additional labor for free. 
Plus, it makes sense.  Having BIND and other packages broken out in pkgsrc
means that security upgrades don't require a rebuild of world, and they
can be tracked for security issues the same as we already do by default in
