That will conceivably work *now*.  However, news of the vulnerability
was announced before the patches were made available.

The above method is probably safe, since you're not incrementing the
package version.  When the official fixes are released, they'll be
installed by apt-get since they'll have a higher version.

Also, you may wish to prepend "apt-get build-dep bind" to the above
