	If they are a part of the bind package, they are not being 
 bundled into the binary package. 

	It would not be a bad idea to package dnswalk and doc as part
 of dnsutils, they are quite small scripts, really. Is Robert Leslie
 <rob@mars.org> still around?

	I have had email from people saying they are interested in
 both these, and I find them invaluable, so failing that, I'd
 volunteer to take them on. 

	Oh, bundling them in would play havoc with the upstream source
 integrity verification process, and, morever, the upstream sources
 unpack in ./ ;-(
