Patched and available to via freebsd-update (and cvs and cvsup and the
links in FreeBSD-SA-07:02.bind) since 9th but thats by the by.

hmm there's a port for 9.4, but since it doesnt have the options for DLZ
which i hear is now integrated i guess you need to roll your own for
that stuff. you could probably have got away with just setting some
configure options (like --sysconfdir=/etc/namedb) and the named_program
variable in /etc/rc.conf rather than hacking /etc/rc.d/named though.
