You need to turn on IDN support at compile time if you want the
lookup tools to do the name conversions prior to looking up the
data in the DNS.
--with-idn=MPREFIX enable IDN support using idnkit default PREFIX
--with-libiconv=IPREFIX GNU libiconv are in IPREFIX default PREFIX
--with-iconv=LIBSPEC specify iconv library default -liconv
--with-idnlib=ARG specify libidnkit
As far as named is concerned these are just regular domain names
that start with "xn--". All the IDN knowledge is outside of named.
