Thanks for the tip. I already figured this out of my own by now.
By the way, one also has to patch the system.mk in dns_server.
Right now, I am quite undecided about eddie, considering that it feels to
a newbie as if over the years, bit rot had done quite some damage.
Nevertheless, I think the erlang community still might have something
quite interesting to offer to the world here, if a few points can be
resolved (including licensing - maybe).
After all, there are a lot of people around who just do not want to run
BIND9, chrooted or not, and who would not consider installing software by
a person who really considers himself the only authority in the world that
has the right to define what a filesystem hierarchy should look like.
There are some further less known alternatives, like MaraDNS, usually
also done in C (or C++), but having a reasonably complete DNS server
implemented in a safe language is certainly a very big plus. (I hope I'm
not over-estimating erlang in terms of security here - as I said, I'm
just a beginner.)
Well, I'll play around a bit more with it tomorrow, and also have a close
look at the code. Thanks all, you're great.
