+1 for having something like dig/host in base.

You could easily have it by just installing bind from pkgsrc (or drill, as you prefer). And new installations would have it anyways because it comes on the LiveCD.

The only question is: Do we want to _maintain_ a drill and libldns in our base from now on? Because that's what we would have to do if it's in base.

IMO it's generally not a good thing if something is in base and exists in pkgsrc and the version in pkgsrc is much newer in due to lack of maintenance of the version in base. Even if you install the pkgsrc version then, you still have the problem that the base version shadows it (per $PATH), and you can't delete the base version without a knob that prevents re-installation, and so on.
