I am running DNSSEC-Tools Version 1.5.rc2. "donuts" and "rollerd" both appear to have problems with SPF records in the zonefile. For example, dounts aborts with the error:
WARNING: failed to read [zonefile] for an unknown reason
unrecognized type, line 20
rollerd also fails with "unrecognized type" errors when the zonefile contains SPF records. The SPF records are identical in format to TXT records and should be valid. This appears to be a problem with Net::DNS::ZoneFile::Fast not supporting SPF RRs. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks for the info. SPF records aren't being parsed by the
Net::DNS::ZoneFile::Fast module as you correctly noted. I've attached a
patch that should fix this issue (and will apply it for future releases
as well; I'll publish a new copy of the module in CPAN immediately as well).
