After many years of being the default DNS server, BIND has been disabled in OpenBSD base:
CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: firstname.lastname@example.org 2014/08/22 13:19:25 Modified files: etc : Makefile changelist group master.passwd rc rc.conf etc/mail : aliases etc/mtree : 4.4BSD.dist Removed files: 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 Log message: 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
In another commit, the build instructions have been pared back to provide the minimum command line utilities users are used to finding:
CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: email@example.com 2014/08/22 13:28:25 Modified files: usr.sbin/bind : Makefile.bsd-wrapper Makefile.in configure configure.in usr.sbin/bind/bin: Makefile.in Log message: 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.
