Hi Paul,

I don't fully grasp your problem: if unbound does not link against
libunbound, upgrading the unbound package would not need to update the
libunbound package.

It is of course possible to use the library dynamically, but probably
unbound links statically for performance optimization reasons.

Best regards,

Matthijs
