Howdy List,

Pkg tells me I can have bind OR bind-utils due to a conflict with 
arpaname, which comes with bind:

> [me at mail1 ~]$ sudo pkg install bind-tools

> The following 2 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

> New packages to be INSTALLED:

So...I can have BIND and run a DNS server or I can have dig/delv and not 
run BIND?

Is this a recent change?  Has anyone else encountered it?  If so, how did 
you handle it?  (Unbound isn't an option for me at this time.)
