I used dselect to do the bind libs updates.   The dependency mismatch
was handled by dselect, and I had to approve what appeared a downgrade
to libisc/dns.  I really don't remember why, but my thought at the
time was that I needed to find a way to purge all libdns and libisc
packages because I don't run bind and only need dig/host/nslookup
functionality on those boxes.

Seriously though, dnsutils needs some overhaul and cleanup
