Heads Up: BIND Disabled in Base

from the night of the living tedu dept.
After many years of being the default DNS server, BIND has been
in OpenBSD base:
Module name: src
Changes by: firstname.lastname@example.org 2014/08/22 13:19:25
etc : Makefile changelist group master.passwd rc
etc/mail : aliases
etc/mtree : 4.4BSD.dist
etc/bind : db.localhost db.loopback db.loopback6.arpa
named-dual.conf named-simple.conf root.hint
etc/rc.d : named
etc/systrace : usr_sbin_named
disable use of bind in base; in the base use nsd/unbound instead.
a proper & complete bind port will show up.
discussed with many for years
another commit, the build instructions have been pared back to provide the minimum command line utilities users are used to finding:
Module name: src
Changes by: email@example.com 2014/08/22 13:28:25
usr.sbin/bind : Makefile.bsd-wrapper Makefile.in configure
Strip the BIND code down to just building and installing dig, host and nslookup.
Users who wish to continue using BIND will have to wait for the port to show up; those wanting to use base to serve their needs will now (finally) need to transition to unbound.
