[Unbound-users] Installed. Now what?

Sorry if I seem a bit naive on this but what I'm trying to accomplish is 
probably harder than it seems.

What I want is from my resolver to use DNSSEC.

So it looks like I need to recompile everything with unbounds library 
and probably not use ISC's BIND resolver library.  Is that correct?

Which would be impossible on a closed source operating system.

So I have it installed and it seems to work - kind of:

$ dig .  +dnssec

; <<>> DiG 9.6-ESV-R4-P3 <<>> . +dnssec
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 10913
;; flags: qr rd ra ad; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 4, ADDITIONAL: 1

but the test web sites both return fail: says no as well as:

So is there any use for me for this utility or was it just a nice 

Thanks in advance,
