Or he could use "-c named.conf"

I chroot to /home/named with named.conf in that directory,
starting named thus;

/usr/local/sbin/named -u named -t /home/named -c /named.conf

The link maybe the wrong way around, no point trying to get out
of a chroot jail with a symbolic link, but the link is not
required anyway.

9.2 has been out a while now as well, I think Mark is tiring of
reminding people about this.
