Never mind. Was looking for journalprint not journalprint.c, and I
haven't compiled all of the various versions of BIND on that particular box.
In any case, journalprint is a handy utility for anyone wanting to learn
about how the journalling function works in BIND. We include it in our
"essential" DNS troubleshooting utilities that we install on all
Unix/Linux boxes, along with dig and a few others.
I personally think it should be moved to a "regular" spot in the
distribution -- being under "test" seems to imply that its status is
rather, er, tenuous.
