Currently, the version of isc-dhcp-client in unstable suffers two rc 
bugs, a FTBFS bug ( 643569 ) and a non-free IETF documents bug ( 645760 
) both related to embedded bind source.

Furthermore isc-dhcp-client FTBFS in testing due to bug 643470 (which is 
fixed in unstable).

It has been a month since the lastest post to any of these bug reports

Is there any progress on solving these issues in a clean manner? It 
seems the ideal soloution is to stop embedding bind at all (but that 
requires changes on the bind side) and second best would be for upstream 
to make a new upstream release of isc-dhcp-client with an updated bind 

If not would you consider applying the quick and dirty soloution of 
simply repacking the upstream tarball to contain a fixed bind tarball?
