>From memory, if you've not set anything up the first time local_unbound
runs it reads your /etc/resolv.conf to gather your resolvers and creates
an unbound.conf that uses them for forwarding for all domains. If you've
set things up yourself it just runs with that, but take a look at
/etc/rc.d/local_unbound to find out which file(s) it needs to see in
order to avoid the default configuration process.
