named/bind98... rather ports usage and base interaction.

Hey Doug,

Do you know of anything we could do to stop the following from happening

If you set world to build without BIND and it is your intention to use
bind from ports... upon running (make delete-old) from source it
attempts to remove empty directories from /etc/named/*. When doing this
it can only remove empty directories and since master & slave usually
will have something in it on most systems dynamic gets removed but left
to be re-created from /etc/rc.d/named on the next boot.

Do you think it would be possible to "for say" create a
USING_BIND_FROM_PORTS make.conf var that could be compared during the
(make delete-old) stage so it does not attempt to do anything with
/etc/named/* ? but yet still allow it to operate on the rest of the
stale files.
