given that you have to link against libbind to get fp_nquery, it's a mystery
to me why the ns_put32 symbol would be missing.  is fp_nquery in libc there?

libbind9 does not have fp_nquery, or ns_put32.  it is part of bind9 and all
of its symbols begin with isc_.  you really need libbind, not libbind9, here.
