"make-localhost" not there (DNS/named setup on 7.0)

After installing FreeBSD 7.0 (AMD64-version) on a new machine wanted
to set up a caching DNS.

As per the handbook
I wanted to run "make-localhost" in order to set up the configuration
files. But the script "make-localhost" isn't there:

$ pwd
$ ls -l
total 22
drwxr-xr-x  2 bind  wheel    512 Feb 24 10:39 dynamic
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel    512 Mar 17 12:50 master
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  11259 Mar 17 16:01 named.conf
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel   2963 Mar 17 16:01 named.root
drwxr-xr-x  2 bind  wheel    512 Feb 24 10:39 slave

Not in this directory, nor anywhere else:

# find / -name make-localhost 

First I thought I did something wrong so I set up another machine with
the AMD64-version of 7.0, but alas - same result - again
"make-localhost" isn't there.  

Has anybody else seen this behavior? Is the handbook wrong wrt setup
of named on a AMD64-system?

Thanks much in advance for any clue,
