I don't like the idea of having contrib source somewhere other than
contrib/.  I'm out of the country with barely functioning network
connectivity so I'm unable to view your changes.  Apparently you are moving
BIND's resolver library sources into src/lib/libc/.  That seems strange to
me.  Also, what are we gaining by switching from BIND's dns tools to
someone else's?
