After running dig and host with strace I found that they were trying
to open the file "C:\cygwin\lib\engines\", which didn't
exist on my system; I saw "geterrno_from_win_error: windows error 126
== errno 2" in the trace, when the binaries were trying to open this
file. I found out that the file belongs to the openssl
package, which indeed, wasn't installed. After I installed it, all is

Maybe some binary requirements changed and the package dependencies
weren't updated to reflect this? I mean, after upgrading bind, the
setup tool should have installed openssl as a dependency.
