            Bug ID: 2702
           Summary: ssh compiled with --with-ldns segfaults during

           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.5p1

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

Backtrace of ssh 7.5p1 segfaulting

When OpenSSH-7.5p1 is compiled with "./configure --with-ldns", ssh
<somehost> segfaults if the host's key is already recorded in

The current head of the master branch is affected too. Builds with
--without-ldns don't exhibit the problem, and neither does
OpenSSH-7.4p1 (according to git bisect, the commit 523db854 "prefer to
use ldns-config to find libldns" introduced the bug).

My ssh_config is empty, and I've tested this against a variety of
sshd's (including github.com). I'll attach a backtrace; if you need a
coredump or information about my build environment, please let me know.
