Would you need to install BIND on the non-devel machines?  I mean, if you
built BIND with static rather than shared libraries the needed bits of
code would get linked in and you wouldn't need to install anything else on
the targets (ie the same as zlib and openssl are by default now).

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
