You can do this by editing Makefile and removing "nb_dns.o" from
the "OBJ =" target (it's at the very end), and editing config.h to

	#define HAVE_NB_DNS


	#undef HAVE_NB_DNS

Finally, set the environment variable $BRO_DNS_FAKE.

If someone would contribute the necessary autoconf magic to do this
automatically, that would be great - it's beyond my meager autoconf
