Branch: CURRENT, Version: 20070128, Package name: host-20070128, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Host is a very powerful DNS query and testing command-line tool. Major
differences with the ancient version of the program with the same name
that's included in the BIND-4 and BIND-8 distributions:

- Major overhaul of the entire code including rigid error checking,
and verbose error messages. Several sections have been rewritten
from scratch. Documentation has been added. Syntax extended.
- It is now possible to do recursive listings into delegated zones.
- Maintain resource record statistics and host count during zone listings.
- Check for various extraneous conditions during zone listings.
- Check for illegal domain names containing invalid characters.
- Verify that certain domain names represent canonical host names.
- Perform ttl consistency checking during zone listings.
- Exploit multiple server addresses if available.
- Option to exploit only primary server for zone transfers.
- Option to exclude info from names that do not reside in a zone.
- Implement timeout handling during connect and read.
- Write resource record output to optional log file.
- Special MB tracing by recursively expanding MR and MG records.
- Special mode to check SOA records at each nameserver for a zone.
- Special mode to check reverse mappings of host addresses.
- Configurable default options in HOST_DEFAULTS environment variable.
- Implement new resource record types from RFCs 1183, 1348, 1664, 1712,
1876 and 1886. Basic experimental NSAP support as defined in RFC 1637.

Log message:
Update to 2007/01/17. Changes:

- the --checkzone option now actually works.
- canonical hostname checks are not done if the answer they are
  found in doesn't have the "recursion available" flag set.
- the logic for printing the warning when canonical hostname
  checks are skipped has been corrected.
- the way that canonical hostname checks are done has been fixed
  so that only initial results from the query for A RRs are used.
- a warning is now printed whenever a query requesting recursion
  results in an answer without the "ra" (recursion available) flag.
