   Bug fixes and development discussion for this code can be discussed on the tech-userlevel mailing list.
   
   Patches of NetBSD (June 2013 head) against libbind-6.0 are available at:
   <http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/misc/reed/libbsdnet/>
   
   libbind provides portability headers: port_before.h and  port_after.h
   
   ### port
   port directory provides portability headers for many operating sytems
   make directory provides common Makefile rules and mkdep
   
   ### bsd
   bsd directory contains compatibility code, such as:
   daemon(), \_\_ftruncate(), isc\_\_gettimeofday(), gettimeofday(),
   mkstemp(), mktemp(), gettemp(), putenv(), \_\_readv(), setenv(),
   unsetenv(), findenv(), \_\_setitimer(), strcasecmp(), strncasecmp(),
   strdup(), isc_strerror(), strpbrk(), strsep(), strtoul(), \_\_utimes(),
   \_\_writev(), \_\_writev()
   
   ### dst
   dst directory contains the Digital Signature Toolkit
   code for the DST API and crypto API.
   The dst code is not included in NetBSD's src. Probably the code in src/lib/libc using it actually is
   not used.
   
   ### inet
   
   src/common/lib/libc/inet/inet_addr.c
   
   NetBSD adds \_inet_aton.c and \_inet_pton.c
   
   libbind has (and NetBSD does not have) inet_data in inet.
   
   ### irs
   irs is the Information Retrieval System; it provides
   getaddrinfo, gethostbyname, and related.
   NetBSD doesn't include irs directory as is. But is comparable
   to some of what we have in src/lib/libc/net/
   
   NetBSD doesn't have
   dns.c top-level accessor function for the dns,
   dns_gr.c for hesiod, 
   gai_strerror.c,
   and more.
   
   ### isc
   isc directory provides many portability functions
   primarily used for ISC software.
   
   NetBSD only ships with:
   src/lib/libc/include/isc/assertions.h
   src/lib/libc/include/isc/dst.h
   src/lib/libc/include/isc/list.h
   src/lib/libc/include/isc/memcluster.h
   src/lib/libc/include/isc/eventlib.h
   src/lib/libc/include/isc/heap.h
   src/lib/libc/isc/assertions.c
   src/lib/libc/isc/ev_streams.c
   src/lib/libc/isc/ev_timers.c
   src/lib/libc/isc/eventlib_p.h
   
   ### nameser
   
   nameser provides the name resolver routines to parse DNS responses
   
   libbind has (and NetBSD does not have) in nameser:
   ns_date.c which provides ns_datetosecs(), isleap(), and datepart();
   ns_newmsg.c  for building DNS message packets;
   ns_rdata.c for unpacking or comparing rdata; and
   ns_sign.c and for ns_verify.c for tsig.
   
   ### resolv
   
   NetBSD adds \_\_dn_comp.c, \_\_res_close.c, \_\_res_send.c,
   h_errno.c, res_compat.c, and res_state.c.
   
   libbind has (and NetBSD does not have) in resolv
   (even though NetBSD manual documents them):
   res_findzonecut.c,
   res_mkupdate.c,
   res_sendsigned.c,
   and
   res_update.c.
   
   ### tests
   tests directory contains dig tool from bind8
