I don't think it has, I think it is now built in!

This is from the 9.9.0 tarball ( contrib/dlz/example/README):

However, as of BIND 9.8, it is also possible to link some DLZ modules
dynamically at runtime, via the DLZ "dlopen" driver, which acts as a
generic wrapper around a shared object that implements the DLZ API. The
"dlopen" driver is linked into named by default, so configure options are
no longer necessary.
