What are the issues with having two copies of bind installed (one in
/usr/pkg, one in /usr/sbin)?  Doesn't bind put stuff in libc, or is that
all in libresolv now?  Once the pkgsrc version is installed, is it safe to
remove all of the bind binaries in /usr/sbin - just to be safe?  (I don't
like leaving ANY insecure code around, since some other admin might
accidentially use it).
