I've started doing on this stuff. I've created example how all could 
look like. You could see which contains 
Makefiles for libisc library. Configure script under progress is on .

Note - of course, all is under development so it's impossible compile 

This is only like sample how could final BIND 9.5 looks like (I don't 
want spend many devel-nights and in the end get answer like "We don't 
need changes like that" :) ). Also I have big reservations about 
intelligence in configure script. I think we could give options how 
change all possible. But not try determine if some system has something 
in /usr/asdf instead in /usr. What's your opinion?
