Does local_unbound work though? 

Its rc.d script polls up to 5 times using unbound-control to check it's
ready to accept queries. Those errors look cosmetic aside from causing a
few seconds extra delay at start-up.

I'd be interested to know whether it does work because someone once
mentioned that local_unbound only supports forwarding, but I've never
found anything to back that up.
