I would like to add that BIND 8.2.2 changed the default paths in
src/port/<os>/Makefile.set  for Solaris (I don't know about other
platforms).  As a result you may have to edit this file or edit the
.settings file in the src directory before building, even if you never
had to do so before.  If you do a make depend before doing the make all,
you can edit the  .settings  file between these two steps.

Just my opinion, but I do not think that /usr/local/* is a good location
for bind on Solaris.
