If there still is interest, I've got just that at . This tool,
ldns-host, implements all the options of bind9-host (except for
debugging ones), and produces close (and often identical) output.
There's a list of differences between ldns-host and bind9-host
in the man page (see ); most items can be fixed if people
will request for it. Some more exotic situations where not tested
though, so that list is only partial.
