bind has more problems than just chroot.

It's been alleged, but I've yet to see proof.  Words are cheap.

Regarding the non-freeness of djbdns:  it's non-free according to the
dfsg.  Specifically, you cannot distribute modified binaries.  Note
that djbdns is not covered by the same terms as qmail; the obstacle
appears to be the tcpserver license.

Note that there is a djbdns installer package in sid.
