>Is there any expertise on implementing Bind and IDN?  Our business is wanting to server up DNS for an IDN.  I have attempted to add what I believe is needed - but can not do a nslookup or a query from external website for this new domain.  Are there any additional steps need to have a IDN?

It is working fine.
We are using this when configuring and compiling BIND on a Linux server:

CFLAGS="-march=native -pipe"
cd contrib/idn/idnkit-1.0-src
make clean
./configure --with-gnu-ld 
make install
cd ../../..

make clean
./configure --disable-atomic --enable-symtable=all --with-openssl --prefix=/usr
--libdir=/usr/lib64 --sysconfdir=/etc --with-gnu-ld  --with-idn --enable-threads
CFLAGS="-O2 -march=native -pipe" --enable-largefile STD_CDEFINES="-DDIG_SIGCHASE=1"
