(I've been busy in another project - but plan to resume rsn)

I looked at the bind library - you should be aware that the external
symbols that are linked to each of these libraries are (afaik) not
compatible - they're more/less compatible at the source-level (if you
include the proper headers), but I observed that someone had decided
to put an extra set of underscores in all of bind's externals vs resolv.
