I imported two new packages into pkgsrc-wip: mydns-mysql and mydns-pgsql.
They're the same program, but, obviously, one uses MySQL and the other
Postgres.  From the DESCR: 

> MyDNS is a free DNS server for UNIX. It was implemented from scratch and
> is designed to serve records directly from an SQL database (currently
> either MySQL or PostgreSQL).
> Its primary objectives are stability, security, interoperability, and
> speed, though not necessarily in that order.
> MyDNS does not include recursive name service, nor a resolver library.
> It is primarily designed for organizations with many zones and/or
> resource records who desire the ability to perform real-time dynamic
> updates on their DNS data via MySQL.
> MyDNS starts and is ready to answer questions immediately, no matter how
> much DNS data you have in the database. It is very fast and memory-
> efficient. It includes complete documentation, including a manual and a
> FAQ.
> MyDNS supports a few frills, including round robin DNS, dynamic load
> balancing, and outgoing AXFR for non-MyDNS nameservers.
> MyDNS is licensed under the GNU General Public License.
