I have a toaster system that does one thing. I'm looking to provide some network troubleshooting ability to the extremely stripped Linux OS by providing the 'dig' command. However, it appears that 'dig' is only available via the 'bind' package.
My questions is: has anyone ever successfully buildt a dig binary without all of the 'bind' cruft? Is this even possible?
I don't want a DNS server, I just want the ability to perform some simple 'dig' lookups.
