 Hi Ken,
 sorry for making trouble. now i found that problem.
 somebody made the entry "NO_BIND=true" in the make.conf
 problem is that more people have access to this machine.
 now, after upgrading from 5.2.1 to 5.3 and changing from 32->64bit
 and rebuild bind9 to the system, "host" from former versions doesn't work
 anymore. normaly it is build by "world" but...when entry in make.conf
 "NO_BIND" bind and also no "host" is build and not updates the old
 "host" which is now invalid.
 sorry for that, i saw this entry when debugging other things :(
 Thanks Robert
