It is now set using DEFAULT_DNSSEC_ROOTKEY_FILE which has a builtin
default? So you can still set it to build on debian, but you don't have
to tweak USERLAND_CFLAGS for it.

That should not happen. I'll look into that today.

no? :)

My preference is for unused, so that we can tell the difference between
output from old versions that do not support this at all, and versions
that support setting it to a value or not.

I think possibly it is not broken, but the method of setting it changed
and I didn't update that in the debian/ files.
