[dev] Change in the build system - please test

Hey all,

the work to upgrade BIND 9 to use automake and more declarative syntax has been
completed to a state where the majority of the work was merged to the development
branch and it will be included in the next major release (e.g. BIND 9.18). However
because this is a big change, I would like to invite people interested in the BIND 9
development to actively go and try it.

All you need to do is:

git clone --depth=1 https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/bind9.git
cd bind9
autoreconf -fi
./configure && make && make install # as usual

Few things needs to be said:

* You should read the main commit description:

* You should look at the list of linked issues to the main (#4) issue which contains list of not-yet-done work:

If there’s an issue you found and it’s small, try to look at the list of existing issues and add it if it fits, or
just add a comment on the issue #4.  If the problem is reasonable big and contained, feel free to open
new issue for it (and probably link it in the comment in issue #4).

Thank you,
Ondřej Surý
