Maybe I am dense, but I found it much simpler to setup Bind as caching DNS 
than to figure out how to setup djbdns.

Perhaps I looked at the wrong tutorials for djdbns, but there are tons of 
tutorials for Bind.

Also worth considering.. beyond caching..
there are services/companies that let you host free DNS.
For example http://zoneedit.com lets you have 5 free domain names.. and 
that's just one, there are others that do simmilar deals
