Patch for Makefile
Unbound without libevent already present in base system.
For maximum performance, we always need to enable libevent support.
But, will not be able make this, if we install unbound from package.
In general I'm not a fan of adding extra dependencies if it can be avoided. However, for unbound it is in the planning to make libevent default starting 1.7.x.
I've contacted the upstreams to see whether they don't mind doing it now.
After contacting the upstreams, I don't see any problem making libevent default. So yes, go ahead.

Base system contains unbound without libevent support enabled.
Enable libevent by default for the port dns/unbound for performance reasons.
