If there were dependencies, apt-get wouldn't have removed bind.

If you look at the top of a dpkg -l output (try "dpkg -l | less"), you'll 
notice that status "rc" means that the package was removed, but some 
configuration files were left.

You can get rid of those configuration files with "dpkg -P bind". Also, 
when removing packages, you can use "apt-get remove --purge [package 
name]" to do this in one step.
