Replacing FreeBSD Base System's BIND

After installing FreeBSD 8.2, I noticed it's using BIND 9.6 but in ports
collection there is newer versions 9.7 and 9.8.
I'd like to know if there is any advantages in upgrading BIND to 9.8
instead of using the base install version.
I'd really appreciate if you can give me some hints of the best way to do
it for future needs while retaining all the advantages
of the base install configuration.
I found this article on the net "" but it's seems
to be outdated

PS: I'm new FreeBSD convert user coming from Linux world :)
