bind914 shar to enable filter-aaaa option

bind911 had the filter-aaaa option included but was removed in bind914. Could we get the option added back to enable this?

I've included a shar for bind914.. Following the bind911 format for filter-aaaa

Bind 9.11 is still in ports tree. The 9.11 version is ESV version which means it will be supported for next 2 years (EOL is planned for 1st quarter of 2020). 
From the other hand, in the recent versions of Bind (9.13.7 and later) "a new plugin mechanism has been added to allow extension of query processing functionality through the use of external libraries. The new filter-aaaa.so plugin replaces the filter-aaaa feature that was formerly implemented as a native part of BIND"[1]. This plugin is a part of both dns/bind914 and dns/bind916 ports (packages). Please take a look at filter-aaaa(8).

[1] Bind 9.13.7 release notes.

Oh. Thanks for pointing that out to me. Sorry, not too familiar with bind. Cool!

Guess I'll close both the bug reports.

Than you for closing this bug. Of course EOL for Bind 9.11 is planned for 1st quarter of the year 2022, not 2020.
