I'm wondering if you really need to import libldns and drill into
the base, if you're not planning to replace the resolver in the libc.
Just removing BIND from the base and adding net/drill to PKGSRC_PACKAGES
in nrelease/Makefile appears to me to be enough.  The only problem with
the current patchset, though, is that pkgsrc doesn't know that we have
libldns in the base, so it'll want to install libldns from pkgsrc first
then build other things (net/nsd, for instance) linked to it.  Maybe not
really a big issue.
