Tried on a couple boxes now, so pretty sure I'm not insane.  But seems the
RPM for Cent6 at least has some issues requiring some manual clean-up.

dnsdist-1.2.0-1pdns.el6.x86_64 was supposed to be removed but is not!
  Verifying  : dnsdist-1.2.0-1pdns.el6.x86_64

dnsdist.x86_64 0:1.2.1-1pdns.el6

The only way I've been able to clean it up is to use "rpm -e
--noscripts dnsdist-1.2.0"
to remove the old version.  Actually need to apply noscripts as well to
remove 1.2.1 (as I just went complete uninstall on another box).  So this
will be an issue for the next update too.

> Hello everyone,
> We are very pleased to announce the availability of dnsdist 1.2.1,
> fixing several issues that were found in 1.2.0:
> * Make dnsdist dynamic truncate do right thing on TCP/IP.
> * Add missing QPSAction.
> * Don't create a Remote Logger in client mode.
> * Use libsodium's CFLAGS, we might need them to find the includes.
> * Keep the TCP connection open on cache hit, generated answers.
> * Add the missing <sys/time.h> include to mplexer.hh for struct timeval.
> * Sort the servers based on their 'order' after it has been set.
> * Quiet unused variable warning on macOS (Chris Hofstaedtler).
> * Fix the outstanding counter when an exception is raised.
> * Do not connect the snmpAgent from a dnsdist client.
> One new feature has also been added by Dan McCombs, allowing to work
> around an issue when dnsdist is compiled with IP_BIND_ADDRESS_NO_PORT
> enabled but run on a kernel that does not support it.
> Finally, the handling of bracketed IPv6 addresses without port has been
> improved by Chris Hofstaedtler.
> Please see the dnsdist website [1] for the more complete changelog [2]

> Release tarballs are available on the downloads website [3].
