Hello Steinar,

I’m not sure how I got it to build without this before (perhaps I 
cheated in some way) but I just tested again and we definitely need this 

I have submitted it at https://github.com/PowerDNS/pdns/pull/4396

For future reference, if you feel things are not progressing on a patch 
or issue, please file an issue or a pull request at github so we don’t 
lose track!

Kind regards,
Peter van Dijk
