Thanks for the update.

 I have  always compiled all versions of Bind we have used so far...we are currently running 9.14.11 so have gone through the compile process before for multiple versions of Bind.

My last successful compile was 9.14.11 and this looks like some new dependencies for 9.16.1 so will try to compile further by getting the package.

Will also look at the link you have provided but those I believe would be set packages and those configuration may not map with what we have but will take a look if need be.

This package contains just the runtime library. However, in order to compile code that links against libuv, you need the "libuv-devel"
package. Besides "libuv-devel", you also need some other packages to build and run BIND properly.

However, seeing as you're stumbling on even this basic step, I'd advise you not to compile BIND. You're better off using packages made by other experienced people. The packages also contain additional files, such as systemd unit files, that make it easy to run BIND. For CentOS, have a look at:
