I think the Op know how to do apt-get, but he decided to play with

As long as *Machine1* and *Machine2* is ABI compatible (OS word size,
binary format, endian etc.,) this 'mv' method will work, assuming that
the mv-ed libraries' dependencies are already present in *Machine2*.

Well, instead of 'mv'-ing libraries, why cant you just download the
source tarball of dnsutils and do-yourself source compilation. Trust me,
its a real fun!! welcome to the dependency hell!!
