Probably should first fix package to install the plugins regardless
and add a MESSAGE about it. There are several plugins that have
prerequisites not installed.
dig in separate package seems fine too. But that means we also want to
install libbind9, libdns, liblwres, libisccfg, libisccc, and libisc.
(Maybe one package or several.)
