Well if you follow the instructions in UPDATING, you'll end up with 
/etc/namedb as a symlink to the chroot directory in /var/named/.

That said, I highly reocmmend that you drop rndc.conf altogether, and 
use the rndc.key format instead. This allows you to get rid of the key 
statements in named.conf as well, and either manage the rndc keys 
seperately (if you need to) or just ignore it and let rc.d/named create 
one for you randomly.
