Shouldn't this be:

    ln -fhs ../var/named/etc/namedb ${DESTDIR}/etc/namedb

although personally I'd vote to remove it as it just creates
${DESTDIR}/etc/namedb/namedb when ${DESTDIR}/etc/namedb is a
directory, it's a noop if the user has already followed UPDATING
and mtree creates the symlink for new installations (I guess).

Moving /etc/namedb to /var/named/etc/namedb and creating the
/etc/namedb symlink go hand-in-hand as a manual task IMHO.

Don't _EVER_ lose your sense of humour !
