Again, which version as "the latest" doesn't answer the question
as there are multiple latests.  Bind is under developement /
maintenance in multiple branches.

Give win32utils/readme1st.txt doesn't describe how to build
named, it describes how to install the shipped binaries.

How did you build named?  Yes, details do matter.

Why do you say that?  The first blocks could have #undef's added
but that doesn't stop ISC_CHECK_ALL and ISC_CHECK_NONE overridding
any individual checks settings and checks are on for any which
aren't explicitly set.

#if defined(ISC_CHECK_ALL) || defined(__COVERITY__)
#define ISC_CHECK_REQUIRE               1
#define ISC_CHECK_ENSURE                1
#define ISC_CHECK_INSIST                1
#define ISC_CHECK_INVARIANT             1

#if defined(ISC_CHECK_NONE) && !defined(__COVERITY__)
#define ISC_CHECK_REQUIRE               0
#define ISC_CHECK_ENSURE                0
#define ISC_CHECK_INSIST                0
#define ISC_CHECK_INVARIANT             0

#define ISC_CHECK_REQUIRE               1

#define ISC_CHECK_ENSURE                1

#define ISC_CHECK_INSIST                1

#define ISC_CHECK_INVARIANT             1
