Thanks, that did the trick. I'm not running this in a jail because I'm
paranoid or anything -- I just need a test environment, and I don't
have an extra machine kicking around. :)

BIND is trying to setup a chroot(8) before it starts. If you're
already inside a jail, then IMHO it is a little overkill (i.e. Running
BIND in a chroot inside a jail).

Check the BIND related values in rc.conf(5). The chroot(8) startup is
triggered via this one:

named_chrootdir="/var/named"    # Chroot directory (or "" not to auto-chroot it)

So try setting it to


and it should disable the chroot code from the startup script.

Of course, if you still need to chroot(8) your named(8) install inside
your jail, then you're at the same point. Consider running another
jail perhaps? Or use BIND's view feature.

Hope this helps,
