Erich,

Are you using bind9-host? If so, which version?

If you're using the sarge version of bind9-host, with the sarge version of libssl0.9.7, and running all this on an i686-class system, then you're looking at bug #321721. The issue is that, if a binary includes hand-written assembly, gcc will assume by default that the code requires an executable stack unless you set a .note.GNU-stack section in the assembly file which says otherwise. And the i686 version of libcrypto includes (surprise!) hand-written assembly.

This bug is already fixed for etch, both in libcrypto.so.0.9.7 and libcrypto.so.0.9.8.
