When it turned out I didn't have this installed.

I just did part of it by hand ones with unbound-host and setup the

- downloaded the files using https and verified the CA-cert(s).
- imported the PGP key in a temporary account.
- checked the files with the PGP-key
- grabbed the DS-record from the file(s) which were just checked before that
- munched the DS-record a bit (I think replace the IN with a .)
- and verified the root with unbound-host -vj "..."
after that I setup unbound to use auto-trust-anchor-file

I think this should be ok and shouldn't need to look at it ever again.
