I did the BIND 4.9.x port for OS/2 - I guess a couple of patches has
made it into the BIND 8.2.x OS/2 port too...

Bjorn Mork <bjorn at mork.no> released the BIND 8.1.2 port available on
hobbes (including patched source), http://ftp-os2.nmsu.edu

do you plan to use the GCC/EMX compiler and libraries?
the EMX environment should make the port a lot easier, however you'll need
the separate syslog() stuff from hobbes and a work-around for setitimer()

all your question about your project are very welcome!
