The way I've always done it when installing Bind 4.9.3 was to leave the
libc resolver alone and install the new shared resolver as version 2.0.

IMHO, the libc resolver should do all of the YP and such in addition to DNS,
and the shared resolver library should only do DNS...  That doesn't mean
the libc shouldn't be upgraded, though.
