The think is, new BIND versions on Debian are rare, and you're
shipping/building a lot of libs and tools with many dependencies so
building own packages is complicated.
The next(!) stable version of Debian (wheezy) will have bind 9.8(!).
I would LOVE an official packaged version (or give me the source with
a debian/ subdir*).
