Just got the idea to start a very simple local DNS server. For that I would like to use named.
Some question I have regarding to this:
Configuration files for named reside in /etc/namedb directory
According to the manual, I might use the command 'sh make-localhost' but this script isn't in my /etc/namedb directory:

triton# cd /etc/namedb
triton# ll
drwxr-xr-x  2 bind  wheel   512 Feb 24 18:49 dynamic
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel   512 May 24 08:44 master
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel   581 Feb 21  2007 named.conf
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  2967 Feb 24 18:53 named.root
-rw-------  1 bind  wheel    97 May 27 19:35 rndc.key
drwxr-xr-x  2 bind  wheel   512 Feb 24 18:49 slave

Did something go wrong with installing named () or do I have to do an additional make install?

Nope.  BIND has been updated and things have changed but the handbook
hasn't caught up yet.  You no longer need to run 'make-localhost'
but can just use the provided zonefiles for forward and reverse
lookups thereof.  The rest is pretty much the same though.
