Where does dig get its output routines from? It doesn't appear to
link against libbind. Has it got its own copy?
>From a distribution maintainer's point of view, duplicating the code
is a bad idea, especially since it's exposed to network traffic. If a
problem comes up, we want to issue a single update (well, for each
supported branch). Hunting down all copies of zlib was quite painful.
