Running BIND9 in a chroot cage using NetBSD's new startup system

DaemonNews.org has the article: "The Berkeley Internet Name Domain software, AKA 'named,' is one of the most important pieces in the mosaic that
represents the structure of the Internet. Due to this importance, it is also a preferred target for hackers, who want to keep
DNS from working, or worse, use security holes in the software to gain control over the machine. Such hacking of a DNS server
can result in a break of confidentiality of the data returned from this server, and is, in general, a bad thing."
