While looking at the UPDATING entry for the bdb mess (more on that
later) I happened to see this:
AFFECTS: users of dns/bind96, dns/bind98 and bind99 on FreeBSD 10.0
AUTHOR: erwin at FreeBSD.org
Bind versions before 126.96.36.199.ESV.R10_2, 9.8.6_2, and 9.9.4_2 on
FreeBSD 10.0 will replace named.conf on upgrade. Make sure to
backup any local changes before upgrading to the _2 versions.
This is not Ok. FreeBSD ports are NEVER supposed to blindly overwrite
config files. Please fix this so that it confirms to over a decade of
policy that FreeBSD ports users should be able to safely depend on.
