There's always the risk, when developing code in a hurry, that
inexperienced coders will change long-standing defaults. You can
do ISC a favor by pointing this out to bind-bugs at isc.org and
bind-suggest at isc.org.
1) The default location for named.conf is /usr/local/etc.
/usr/local is usually a networked filesystems in Solaris (as
opposed to the desktop / single-user / standalone Unix' like
FreeBSD and Linux).
The default location for named.conf has always been
/etc and probably should not be changed.
2) Named binaries are installed under /usr/local/sbin.
See #1 above.
3) The named binary under Solaris is "in.named" but the
binary is installed as "named".
Existing named binaries are neither backed-up nor updated.
