ISC didn't write the "dig +sigchase" code; it was contributed to us by the
IDsA project, and we haven't done much to maintain it. It's somewhat buggy
and fragile code, which is why it's #ifdef'd out. We've planned for years
to overhaul or rewrite it, add NSEC3 and DLV support, and take out the
#ifdef's, but so far that's always fallen to time and resource limits.
Until we do have a proper DNSSEC-aware dig, you might try "drill" from
the Unbound project.
