(14:36:08) [laszlof at ritamari ~]% grep named /etc/defaults/rc.conf
named_enable="NO" # Run named, the DNS server (or NO).
named_program="/usr/sbin/named" # path to named, if you want a different
named_flags="-u bind" # Flags for named
Add the approapriote lines to /etc/rc.conf and you're all set. DO NOT, I
repeat, DO NOT EDIT /etc/defaults/rc.conf. put overrides for it in
