Is there any chance to get bind back w/o threading support? I guess
the question is more to Doug than to you.

I found it usefull especially for (CF) installations where I
neither needed pppctl nor any other thing that depended on a threading
library but a caching nameserver. Going with a port for this
means supporting the ports infrastructure respectively an extra
installation procedure. Nothing that can't be done just extra pain;-)
So far it was easier to go with just base and live with the size of
