What are your permissions on /var/named  ?  how about
/var/named/etc/namedb ? by default i think the chroot stuff expects or
wants /etc/namedb  to be a symlink to /var/named/etc/namedb, is this the
case ?

What is line 6 of your /etc/named.conf and why is named looking for this
rather than /etc/namedb/named.conf as specified.

I have the portsversion of 9.3 with DLZ on my laptop as a testbed and it
works fine with
named_program="/usr/local/sbin/named"
named_flags="-c /etc/namedb/named.conf"
named_chrootdir="/var/named"
named_enable="YES"

So my guess is permissions or configuration file issue
