        /etc/hosts ??? 

I gave up trying to add delays to allow bind to start.  It was easier
to just append the half-dozen addresses I needed for booting to
/etc/hosts.  It is a bit of a maintenance hassle to keep it in sync
with the addresses bind finds, but it beats a hung boot or improperly
started daemons.
