Upgrade - this version has known security issues.

Nothing, you copy of h2n is not generating standard conforming
zonefiles, as the standard moved on.

Check if there is an upgraded version of h2n around.

I always found h2n the kind of tool I run once, and then
maintain the DNS zone files afterwards. Trying to maintain your
DNS data in zone files makes it harder to use features like MX
records flexibly.
