bind 9.3.2 dig win32 broken?

I use the dig.exe tool frequently on all of my machines, and when I downloaded the newest version of the binary kit for windows (9.3.2), I noticed it can no longer resolve via my registry entries.  I have compiled the source myself on windows XP, hoping it was a build bug, but the executable still does not locate my DNS servers in my registry.

Using resolv.conf is not an option on my laptop, as I am always assigned differing name server addresses.

OS: winxp sp2
compiler: vc6sp6 +vcpp5 w/active perl w/openssl 0.9.8x (renamed to openssl 0.9.6k) 

I have googled extensively on this and have seen no one else complaining of this.

Dig 9.3.0 and 9.3.1 are not so 'broken'.
