Well, on MacOS 10.8 it leaves the system with no functioning DNS, which
is problematic.

No: the system where I had unbound installed via MacPorts is the system
where dnssec-trigger worked.

Installing dnssec-trigger on a clean 10.8 system, where there is no sign
of MacPorts, fails.  Because the user creation is broken.  And then
something _else_ going wrong, such that dnssec-trigger-control-setup.sh
appears to not be called, because unbound.conf does not get the auto
trust anchor and remote control settings added to it.

On my laptop, with MacPorts, it had been flawless.

Heck, just a PGP detached signature on the DMG would be nice.  :)
Otherwise, developer signing keys would avoid some installation
warnings, without needing to go through the App Store.
