The MIT Hesiod distribution is geared towards applications.  It should
be fine for testing amd's Hesiod support.  But I would recommend
against incorporating the MIT Hesiod distribution into NetBSD at this
point.  Hesiod is part of BIND 8.1's IRS library (as well as Luke's
nsswitch library, although it may be out of date there) and from an OS
integration point of view the BIND or nsswitch approach makes more
sense.  The core Hesiod routines should then show up in libc.
