The symlink and /var/named structure is fine as i completely rm -rf'd 
them before letting the new named rc.d script create them. I found the 
issue but am not sure what to do about it. On the second reload there is 
a message in syslog saying:

none:0: open: /etc/namedb/rndc.key: permission denied

So I am assuming because the chroot is set to /var/named it can't access 
this or something?
