Ok, I removed the last commit and edited 7c704b13 to contain that. Also
reverte the removal of rndcontrol from 22a6bbb1. I would be very thankful
if you gut look at it again.
Thanks, I've done a full buildworld/installworld/upgrade onto one of
my laptops and it went flawlessly.
One thing I miss from `host' command is its terseness in the output.

  $ host www.dragonflybsd.org
  www.dragonflybsd.org is an alias for leaf.dragonflybsd.org.
  leaf.dragonflybsd.org has address
  leaf.dragonflybsd.org mail is handled by 10 leaf.dragonflybsd.org.
`host -v' gives you a similar output as drill does.  Drill does have
-Q(quiet) option, but it's too shy to show me anything no matter what
it finds or not, not even the return code :)
  $ drill -Q www.dragonflybsd.org; echo $?
  $ drill -Q www.dargonflybsd.org; echo $?
I can write an alias or a shell function to cope with the verboseness,
but maybe we could modify the behavior of -Q to show something rather
than nothing.
Perhaps we can provide a 'host' script that generates mostly-compatible
output using drill in the background?
It should be possible to hack drill.c to add another option like '-h' 
that provides a host like output I'd guess. The "-Q" option does not 
look very overthough, so :-)
