Well I may just do that but I figured using the API calls
wouls be easier from a C application than opening pipes to
nsupdate.  Further, I would rather handle errors from the
calls rather than parsing nsupdate's -d output.

Thanks for the info.  I will look at some of the include
files and nsupdate itself to see what I can figure out.
