FreeBSD 10 – BIND removed from the base system (good) AND nslookup and dig are removed too…SO…see below…

Under the “2.3. Userland Changes” section:

“BIND has been removed from the base system.
unbound(8), which is maintained by NLnet Labs, has
been imported to support local DNS resolution
functionality with DNSSEC. Note that it is not a
replacement of BIND and the latest versions of BIND
is still available in the Ports Collection. With
this change, nslookup and dig are no longer a part
of the base system. Users should instead use
host(1) and drill(1) Alternatively, nslookup and
dig can be obtained by installing dns/bind-tools
port. [r255949]”

host man page
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=host&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+10.0-RELEASE&arch=default&format=html

drill man page
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=drill&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+10.0-RELEASE&arch=default&format=html

For those of you who use nslookup and dig as I do, install bind-tools via ports or packages.

ports:
/usr/ports/dns/bind-tools

packages:
pkg install bind-tools

If you use nslookup or dig in scripts, you’ll need to update them as the default location has obliviously changed from /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin
