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.
