This is the final Call. I will push my BIND removal patch-set sometime
really soon, probably today. You can use bind form pkgsrc as a replacement
(either build locally or using prebuild binaries). The stability problem
has been worked around in pkgsrc nad packages are available now.

Justin already setup a wiki page for 2.8 to document the needes steps. I
have updated these to what I finally used to make it work. Of course there
are different possibilites to achieve the same (use the User option when
building BIND or moving the config files to /usr/pkg and so on). Please
choose for yourself.


Also, you can change to BIND from pkgsrc *before* updating world to latest
master. That will give you the opportunity to test with BIND from pkgsrc
and still keep the BIND in base as a fallback.
