Dear all,

I have lately been busy working on ripping BIND out from contrib and 
base. I entirely remove BIND from contrib/ and moved the necessary files 
for libresolv into lib/libc so libc still builds and works.

I have rebased my work on the latest master.
It will take some time for me to document the upgrade path to BIND from 
pkgsrc for those people actually running a BIND based Nameserver. When I 
am finished with that and noone strongly objects in the meantime I will 
issue a "HEADS UP" on users@ and kernel@ and push it in.

So, take your chance and test :-)
