Patch to 3.0.5 to disable VERSION.BIND responses

I have attached a patch to NSD 3.0.5 that will refuse responses to the 
Chaos queries VERSION.BIND and VERSION.SERVER.  It adds an nsd.conf 
variable version-bind which defaults to yes meaning it will respond. 
Setting the variable to no will cause NSD to refuse the request.

I would like to request that this patch be added into the mainstream 
code so I don't have to patch future versions.  I hope this will be of 
use to other users as well.
