Hmm, it's been a while but I compiled and installed it without any difficulty 
(IIRC).  I did it on Tiger though.  

You did both the "./configure" and "make" steps right?

Darwin Ports isn't that big a deal, I have it and MacPorts installed on some 
machines and they mostly work well.  

Assuming you get it installed you might want to consider WebMin for setting it 
up.  I have both DHCP and BIND installed on my server and use WebMin to 
configure them.  It works very well.  

The other thing I did was set up /Library/StartupItems entries for both so 
they'd start at boot time.
