How do I get bind-utils?

BTW: I wish I could look up these sorts of questions with an ordinary search engine. But when I use a search engine, for anything to do with Devuan, I always get answers for Debian.

Use the -debian operator to eliminate debian.  Or -ubuntu etc.  I do that all the time.

Most answers applicable to Debian can also be used for Devuan.

What is it that you want from this mysterious "bind-utils" package? http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/vi … utils.html suggests that the bind9 package will provide everything you need.

There is a specific bind-utils package in Debian's experimental repositories, perhaps you could try backporting that.
