The easiest thing to do is install BIND9 from the ports, and set named_program="/usr/local/sbin/named" in /etc/rc.conf. This won't remove the version in the base system, but it will cause the newer version to be started at boot time. If you really want to delete the default version, find and delete any BIND-related files (the packing list for the ports version of BIND8 may be helpful here) before you install the port of BIND9. You should probably also set `NO_BIND=true' in /etc/make.conf, so that you don't end up building them again at your next buildworld. I have only attempted this once, though, and found the effort was not rewarded with any real sense of achievement. > It doesn't seem to be a package. It's not. It comes as part of the base system.
