The PID file location for currently hardcoded to /var/run in the named binary.
Is there a good reason for not changing that to /var/run/named/pid as
the default on FreeBSD, instead of adjusting the location in both
/etc/defaults/rc.conf and named.conf? This is error-prone, and easy
to forget -- if you do, it means named won't start up as it cannot
write the PID file to the default location.
Second, shouldn't /etc/rc.d/named be rewritten to take rndc into
account, and not use /etc/rc.subr?
