I saw there was a new version today so I just upgraded about 2 hours ago
from 8.2.3
Here is everything I did:
{no errors, one or two warnings on a BSDi 4.1 system.
"prototype not used" was one and I can't remember the other }
{if you don't like the number of warnings or the type of warnings you are
getting then
stop right there and find out if there is special compile flags you might
need or params to the make}

make install

ran the /usr/local/sbin/named-checkconf program.
Never heard of it before but it seemed like something to run.
I had to fix swap the order of two things in the loging section of
"file" command had to come first for whatever reason.
It wanted the full path name of the slave.conf file for some reason.

kill -9 [pid of named]
/usr/local/sbin/named  [old one was in /usr/sbin]

and it came right up.
checked the /var/log/daemon.log for errors.
everything was cool.
