OK I will put files support.

Nope, bah depending what your want, now that nss_files will be add is 
likely that you want other behaviour than the default for "hosts" db 
(|dns [!UNAVAIL=return] files)| to (files dns) like provided by 
filesystem pkg.

What do you think? I can add a fixed nsswich.conf with only "hosts: 
files dns" or keep default behaviour, or any other thing...
