Getting (barely) started with bind9

For those of you tracking -CURRENT and upgrading *after* bind9 was connected
to the build, here's a relatively minimal named.conf that will work for bind9.

% options {
% 	directory "/etc/namedb";
% 	pid-file "/var/run/named/pid";
% };
% zone "." { type hint; file "named.root"; };
% zone "0.0.127.IN-ADDR.ARPA" { type master; file "master/127.0.0.rev"; };
% zone "" { type master; file "master/"; };

Make sure you update rc.conf to use -c config-file too if you were using the
old bind8 option -b config-file.

This should get you up and running until you get a chance to read the full
list of bin9 options from the file `/usr/src/contrib/bind9/doc/misc/options'.

Just my $0.02 to all the -CURRENT users ;-)
