I have been following this issue, but I haven't seen any conclusive
statements that any of the proposed solutions are effective and I
don't want to make a change to the port without knowing for sure that
it's the right one (and unfortunately I don't have an amd64 system to
do testing on).

So, can someone please state affirmatively if the proposed patch to
the port (ARCH=           x86_64) results in the right stuff in
config.log, AND results in a named that doesn't experience the leaks?

And can someone please state affirmatively that the patches to acl.c
and iptable.c do the right thing, with or without the patch to the port?
