I believe development had stopped on nslookup some time ago. The last 
time I used nslookup it did not support some newer record types such as 
AAAA (ipv6).

Dig is slow. Use one of the two 'host' packages instead. One version of 
host ships with the BIND dns server. The other version of host is older. 
Both are similar but (ofcourse) have a different command line syntax.
