This was already fixed in cvs before the bug was filed and will be in the

I don't know how any amount of configuration fixing can get around the fact
that usepeerdns requires that /etc/resolv.conf (or what it points to) be
futzed with.  Other packages also need to alter resolv.conf.

The only solution to the resolv.conf mess I can see is to put a nameserver
in base and provide a standardized way to feed forwarders to whatever
nameserver is running.

It has to be done progammatically and work for all packaged nameservers.
