	(maybe tech-net is better...)

	NetBSD tree has two separate version of BIND in the tree, like:
	- BIND4-based resolver in libc/libresolv, and
	- BIND8-based userland tools in usr.sbin/bind
	(correct me if I'm wrong)
	They has to be, at least, in sync for less confusions.
	I introduced some workaround like below, but I think this is not the
	right way.  There are IPv6 related mods which adds more confusion:-)

	As I'm not familiar with BIND import into NetBSD, and I saw the
	following in doc/3RDPARTY, I added explicit To: lines.
> Package:        bind/named

	- is there any plan for update by you, or can I do the update?
	- is there big reason to stick to 4.9.7-TB1?
	  (I do not want to break other people's build by this...)

Modified Files:
	basesrc/usr.sbin/bind/include: resolv.h

Log Message:
fix dig and nslookup.
sizeof(_res) must be the same for libc, libresolv and libbind.
libc and libresolve uses bind4 while libbind seems to use bind8.

complete fix would be to share the same codebase among libc and libbind,
but I don't know if importing bind8 into libc/libresolv (or bind9 to
all the places) is the right answer.  it involves a big change.
