If you can build the port successfully, you can build your own package.
`make package' in the appropriate place will do it for you. Note that
you will probably have to uninstall BIND first on the build machine, but
`make package' will install it and create a binary package for you. You
can then put the package on a local ftp server and point pkg_add in its
direction or use NFS to share it.
