That's better. It finds the library, but it's too old.

Either you need newer library from ports (if available) or download,
compile and install into your custom location (it could be the unbound

E.g. roughly do:

cd unbound-x.y.z
wget http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/downloads/ldns/ldns-1.6.12.tar.gz
tar -xzf ldns-1.6.12.tar.gz
cd ldns-1.6.12
./configure --disable-shared && make
cd ..
./configure --with-ldns=ldns-1.6.12 --disable-shared <rest-of-configure-options>

P.S.: --disable-shared is optional and you can have shared libraries
if you install ldns along unbound where dynamic linker could find it.
